A review is presented of the history, use, properties, and toxicity of carbon tetrachloride, with emphasis on the need for preventive steps against poisoning by the compound. Safety precautions include warnings to workers, proper engineering controls and adequate ventilation. The threshold limit of the solvent in industry accepted in 1948 by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists is 50 ppm.
