Abstract:

This final report on a contract between the Department of Transportation and the United States Air Force Toxic Hazards Laboratory supplements the acute toxicity data reported in TSA-20-72-3. In the previous report the toxicity of several compounds of interest to the Department of Transportation was discussed. This was done in the light of a reexamination of existing data or the determination of acute toxicity data on those compounds where no previous data existed. The information so gathered was used to help reclassify these compounds into categories which may help to define shipping and handling requirements concomitant with the hazard associated with each compound. The classifications assigned are not official regulatory classifications and are presented for technical information only. Seven new compounds were examined in this same light to provide additional information to the Department of Transportation. These compounds are as follows mixed cresols, allyl isothiocyanate, methyl isothiocynate, methyl isocyanate, ortho-nitroaniline, ethyl chloro-acetate and phenyl isocyanate.
