TOXICOLOGICAL TESTING OF SELECTED HAZARDOUS MATERIALS FOR TRANSPORTATION PURPOSES

A number of organic chemicals was subjected to selected toxicological tests prescribed for classification purposes in the Department of Transportation Hazardous Materials regulations. Some of these materials were also examined for skin corrosivity. Aqueous solutions of several common inorganic acids and bases were tested to establish dividing line between corrosive and non-corrosive concentrations. Test results are reported.
