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

The document focuses on describing and evaluating the risks of epichlorohydrin for human health and the environment. Epichlorohydrin is a highly reactive and flammable chemical. It is used as an intermediate in the production of numerous substances, notably glycerol and epoxy resins. It can be detected using gas chromatography at concentrations as low as 0.25 mg/in3 in air and 40 pg/litre in water. Human exposure mainly occurs at the place of work through inhalation and skin contact.
