1.0000 219. Ethylene oxide (WHO Pesticide Residues Series 1)
    Summary: Brown (1970) has determined ethylene oxide and ethylene chlorohydrin in plastic and rubber surgical equipment sterilized with ethylene oxide. Spitz and Weinberger (1971) extend the method to determine ethylene oxide, ethylene chlorohydrin and ethylene glycol. Residues may include ethylene oxide itself and any of the following derivatives: ethylene chlorohydrin, ethylene bromohydrin, ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol and certain alkylated and hydroxyethylated reaction products of food ...

1.0000 052. Ethylene oxide (FAO Meeting Report PL/1965/10/2)
    Summary: Residues Residues of gaseous ethylene oxide as high as 68 ppm have been reported in wheat fumigated by ethylene oxide at atmospheric pressure and under vacuum in commercial treatments or in experiments simulating practical conditions (Lubatti, 1944; El Nahal, 1954). The only toxic products derived from ethylene oxide were ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol in amounts of 0.002%, dry weight (Gordon et al., 1959). Evaluation Since no long-term experiments are available, no acceptable daily ...

1.0000 129. Ethylene oxide (FAO/PL:1968/M/9/1)
    Summary: In flour fumigated with ethylene oxide, a level of 260 ppm ethylene chlorohydrin has been detected. Comments The main identified reaction product of ethylene oxide left as a residue on food is ethylene chlorohydrin. REFERENCES Adler, N. (1965) Residual ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol in ethylene oxide sterilized pharmaceuticals.

    Summary: ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING FIRE & EXPLOSION Extremely flammable. ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes. First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

1.0000 Ethylene Oxide (IARC Summary & Evaluation, Volume 60, 1994)
    Summary: Ethylene oxide has been produced since the early 1900s, originally by the reaction of ethylene chlorohydrin with base and in recent years more commonly by catalytic oxidation of ethylene. In epidemiological studies of exposure to ethylene oxide, the most frequently reported association has been with lymphatic and haematopoietic cancer. Inhaled ethylene oxide is readily taken up in man and rat, and aqueous ethylene oxide solutions can penetrate human skin.

1.0000 Ethylene oxide (HSG 16, 1988)
    Summary: Ethylene oxide, sold for fumigation or sterilization purposes, is often mixed with carbon dioxide (e.g., 10-30% ethylene oxide and 70-90% carbon dioxide) or fluorocarbons (e.g., 12% ethylene oxide and 88% fluorocarbons), as already indicated by the trade names in section 1.1. The European Community legislation on labelling of pesticide preparations classifies ethylene oxide in Class I/a for the purpose of determining the label for preparations containing ethylene oxide and other active ...

1.0000 Ethylene oxide (EHC 55, 1985)
    Summary: ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH CRITERIA FOR ETHYLENE OXIDE The WHO Task Group for the Environmental Health Criteria for Ethylene Oxide met at the Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, in Brussels, Belgium, on 21 - 26 October 1985. Chemical and Physical Properties of Ethylene Oxide Ethylene oxide is a gas at room temperature and normal atmospheric pressure. The peak concentration of 1,2-ethanediol at 25 mg ethylene oxide/kg body weight represented approximately 25% of the dose of ethylene oxide.

1.0000 Ethylene Oxide (Cicads 54, 2003)
    Summary: Similarly, ethylene oxide may be present in nonylphenol ethoxylate formulations at concentrations below 10 mg/litre (Talmage, 1994), and ethylene oxide may remain as a contaminant at 10 mg/kg in liquid detergents. Ethylene oxide is hydrolysed in fresh water to ethylene glycol and in salt water to ethylene glycol and ethylene chlorohydrin. The concentrations of ethylene oxide predicted above are based on the assumption that air entering southern Ontario from neighbouring regions contains no ...
