    The OSHA standard that states that certain fire extinguishing agents that can’t be used in portable fire extinguishers for personnel in the workplace are listed in (c)(3) The employer shall not provide or make available in the workplace portable fire extinguishers using carbon tetrachloride or chlorobromomethane extinguishing agents. Human reports of exposure to high doses of carbon tetrachloride by inhalation or ingestion mentioned headaches, drowsiness, comas, or seizures. In acute inhalation studies, animals exposed to high doses ( ppm) of carbon tetrachloride experienced stupor, incoordination, and unconsciousness.

    Dichloromethane is a member of the class of chloromethanes that is methane in which two of the hydrogens have been replaced by chlorine.A dense, non-flammible colourless liquid at room temperature (b.p. 40℃, d = ) which is immiscible with water, it is widely used as a solvent, a paint stripper, and for the removal of caffeine from coffee and tea.

Carbon tetrachloride was further evaluated using the published cancer slope factor; and based on subsequent conservative calculations, there is no increased theoretical lifetime cancer risk associated with carbon tetrachloride.

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has developed a public health goal (PHG) of mg/L (or ppb) for carbon tetrachloride in drinking water.

(1) Carbon tetrachloride has a sweet characteristic odor, with an odor threshold above 10 ppm. (1) The vapor pressure for carbon tetrachloride is mm Hg at 20 C, and its log octanol/water partition coefficient (log K ow) is (1) Conversion Factors.

Carbon tetrachloride possesses properties indicating a hazard for human health (acute toxicity (liver), slight skin and eye irritation, skin sensitization, repeated dose toxicity (liver, kidney), carcinogenic effects in experimental animals (principally liver tumours.

Carbon tetrachloride (CC14) is a haloalkane with a wide range of industrial and chemical applications. Its presence in the atmosphere and in water appears to be of anthropogenic origin. It is readily absorbed through the lung, gastrointestinal tract and skin and, therefore, poses a hazard to human health.

This document is an assessment of the literature available up to Marchwith the. guideline for carbon tetrachloride in drinking water is established as a maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of mg/L (2 µg/L). Health effects Carbon tetrachloride is classified as a possible human carcinogen, based on inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity in humans, but sufficient evidence in animals.

However, there are. Also known as: Carbon tet, Perchloromethane, CCl4, Carbon chloride, Tetrachloromethane, Perc Chemical reference number (CAS): Carbon tetrachloride (Carbon tet) is a non-flammable colorless liquid with a heavy, sweet odor.
