1-Chloro-1-nitropropane

May 1994
Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health Concentrations (IDLH)

CAS number: 600–25–9

NIOSH REL: 2 ppm (10 mg/m3) TWA

Current OSHA PEL: 20 ppm (100 mg/m3) TWA

1989 OSHA PEL: 2 ppm (10 mg/m3) TWA

1993-1994 ACGIH TLV: 2 ppm (10 mg/m3) TWA

Description of Substance: Colorless liquid with an unpleasant odor.

LEL: . . Unknown

Original (SCP) IDLH: 2,000 ppm

Basis for original (SCP) IDLH: The chosen IDLH is based on the statement in Patty [1963] that 1 of 2 guinea pigs died following a 1-hour exposure to 2,178 ppm; no rabbits died from this exposure, and no rabbits or guinea pigs died from a 1-hour exposure to 1,069 ppm [Machle et al. 1945].

Short-term exposure guidelines: None developed
