Comparative Mutagenicity of Epichlorohydrin and Cadmium

  • B. A. Bridges

Abstract

Epichlorohydrin, \(\overline {O - C{H_2} - C} H - C{H_2}Cl\), is an important industrial chemical used in the production of many chemical compounds and polymers. Commercial U.S. production of epichlorohydrin was 550 million pounds in 1975, a 70% increase over the amounts produced in 1969. Its major uses are in the manufacture of glycerol and epoxy resins; other products in which it plays a role include emulsifiers, lubricants, dyestuffs, surfactants, and adhesives.
