Center for Chemical Hazard Assessment, Syracuse Research Corporation, Syracuse, New York, SRC TR 81-626, Second Draft 1982 Mar; :1-178
Information was provided concerning inorganic copper compounds, which have an annual production of at least 1 million pounds, and for organic copper compounds, with an annual production of at least 100,000 pounds. These compounds included copper (7440508) metal, copper-acetate (142712), copper arsenate (7778418), copper-carbonate (12069691), cuprous-chloride (7758896), cupric-chloride (7447394), copper-cyanide (544923), copper-2-ethylhexanoate (149111), copper- hydroxide (20427592), copper-8-hydroxyquinolate (10380286), copper- naphthenate (1338029), copper-nitrate (3251238), copper-oleate (1120441), cuprous-oxide (1317391), cupric-oxide (1317380), copper- sulfate (7758987), and copper-sulfide (1317404). Information provided included synonyms, chemical structure, physical and chemical properties, manufacturing processes and volumes, uses, manufacturers, distributors, and occupational exposures. Biological effects were reported as discovered through animal studies and included data on subchronic exposures, chronic exposure, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, teratogenicity, reproductive effects, human pharmacokinetics, health effects on workers, target organ toxicity, ongoing studies and suggestions for further reading.
