Abstract
Formation of bis-chloromethyl-ether (542881) (BCME) was investigated at two unspecified textile industries (SIC-2221). BCME sampling was performed in areas where formaldehyde (50000), and chloride ions were used in the work process. BCME was not detected in any of the samples. Concentrations of formaldehyde and chloride ions were below 1.5 and 1.1 parts per million, respectively. The author recommends sampling at any work site or process where BCME formation is suspected.
