Tetrachloroethylene - Environmental Health Criteria 31

United Nations Environment Programme ; World Health Organization ; International Labour Organisation (1984)

The document focuses on describing and evaluating the risks of tetrachloroethylene for human health and the environment. Tetrachloroethylene is widely used as a dry-cleaning and degreasing solvent under many different chemical, common, generic, and code names. Assessment of the toxicity of commercial tetrachloroethylene is frequently complicated by the presence of minor amounts of stabilizers that may themselves be toxic.
