Abstract
Air samplings and medical studies at a chemical plant indicate that N-acetylsulfanilyl-chloride (121608) produces toxic effects as used and found in the N-acetylsulfanilyl-chloride production area. Toxicity reactions include irritation of the eyes, skin, and upper respiratory tract. Following prolonged exposure, certain individuals develop hypersensitivity to the compound and subsequent allergy symptoms. Another compound, methylene-chloride (75092), is also hazardous to dryer operators at the concentrations used and found.
