Abstract
The molecular structure, Chemical Abstracts Service number, Registry of Toxic Effects of Chemical Substances number, production figures, uses, and producer and user data are provided for lead-naphthenate (50825291), tetramethyl-lead (75741), and tetraethyl-lead (78002) (TEL). These lead (7439921) compounds exert their toxic effects on the central nervous system and are accompanied by symptoms ranging from behavioral disorders and hyperagitation to convulsions and paralysis. TEL affects the liver, kidneys, pancreas, stomach, thyroid, lungs, heart, the endocrine system, thymus, adrenals, and testes. Tetramethyl-lead and TEL have been determined to be carcinogenic, while lead-naphthenate is neoplastic. TEL, an additive in motor fuel, accounts for much of the airborne lead that man breathes, although not in organic form. TEL can cause delirium, hallucinations, mania, convulsions, coma and death. Threshold limit values for tetramethyl-lead and TEL are given, with some other standards. (Contract No. 210-77-0120)
