Abstract
Research concerning reproductive hazards associated with exposure to glycol ethers was reviewed. This report listed several references which may be helpful for those who must determine whether the ethylene glycols presently in use or proposed for use at their facilities are reproductive health hazards. Both ethylene-glycol- monomethyl-ether (109864) and ethylene-glycol-monoethyl-ether (110805) have been demonstrated to be testicular toxicants and teratogenic. The acetates of each were biologically equivalent to the corresponding alkyl ether alcohol. Propyl and longer substituents on ethylene-glycol ethers have not been shown to be detectable reproductive health hazards. Relatively little research has been performed concerning the propylene glycol ether family. The reproductive toxicity of the primary and secondary alcohols was discussed.
