Abstract:

Toxic Point is a term under consideration by the United Nations Group of Rapporteurs on the Packaging of Dangerous Goods. It is defined as the temperature at which the equilibrium concentration of vapor of a substance measured at 760 millimeters is equal to the LC50 of the substance. This is also referred to as the Temperature Threshold of Toxicity. This report contains the Toxic Points calculated for 57 substances. The calculations are shown together with the toxicity and vapor pressure data used therein.
