Toluene evaporates when exposed to air. It dissolves only slightly when mixed with water Most direct releases of toluene to the environment are to air Toluene also evaporates from water and soil exposed lo air Once in air, toluene breaks down to other chemicals Mi- croorganisms that live in walcr and in soil can also break down toluene.   Exposure to toluene occurs from breathing contaminated workplace air, in automobile exhaust, some consumer products paints, paint thinners, fingernail polish, lacquers, and adhesives. Toluene affects the nervous system. Toluene has been found at of the 1, National Priority List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Air Quality 2 ­ GC/FID Determination of Toluene in Air Introduction: In the first part of this experiment we found that there are measureable amounts of benzene and toluene (and higher molecular weight aromatics) in gasoline. And we noted that a significant fraction of the aromatics in the fuel ends up in the air we breatheFile Size: 97KB.

Toluene at room temperature is a colourless, volatile liquid with a highly flammable vapour having a characteristic aromatic hydrocarbon odour. Hazardous properties Apart from the risk of vapour ignition, toluene, when inhaled and/or absorbed through the skin, can have a narcotic and degenerative effect on the central nervous system and cause. Pathways of exposure. Inhalation accounts for more than 95–99% of the benzene exposure of the general population, whereas intake from food and water consumption is minimal (3,32).In the United States, daily benzene intake from ambient and indoor air has been calculated to range between and μg/day, and that in food and water up to about μg/day ().

Toluene is added to gasoline, used to produce benzene, and used as a solvent. Exposure to toluene may occur from breathing ambient or indoor air affected by such sources.

The central nervous system (CNS) is the primary target organ for toluene toxicity in both Toluene in air book and animals for acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) g: air book.

period, found that active smokers were exposed to about four times the level for passive smokers. Toluene is a man-made aromatic hydrocarbon produced mostly from petroleum. In the U.S., the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, toluene is produced by 21 companies at 30 plants.

Most toluene produced is derived from petroleum fractions. In3, megagrams ( million gallons) of toluene were recovered.

Toluene, a.k.a. methyl benzene, is a clear, flammable, water-insoluble liquid with the odor of paint thinner. It can be found naturally in petroleum crude oil.

Exposure to toluene can occur through air, water, soil, and groundwater, but almost all of the toluene released as emissions is dispersed into the air.

Toluene is also called as toluol, is an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is first isolated in by distillation of pine oil by a Polish chemist named Filip Walter. It is colorless, water-insoluble and has a smell associated with paint thinners. Toluene can also be used as a recreational inhalant sometimes, and it also has the potential of causing severe neurological harm.

Toluene, also known as "methylbenzene", "phenylmethane" or "toluol" is a clear, colorless liquid with a sweet smell. It dissolves other substances easily and evaporates quickly into the air. Toluene is also highly flammable and may catch on fire if exposed to heat or g: air book.

The MCL for toluene is also 1, ppb. The Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) enforceable standard (permissible exposure limit or PEL) for toluene in workplace air is ppm averaged over eight hours.

Residential Indoor Air Quality Guideline for Toluene A short-term exposure limit was derived based on a no observed adverse effect level (NOAEL) of mg/m³ from the study by Andersen et al. () of healthy adult volunteers exposed for seven hours to toluene, and screened for neurologically-related symptoms (headaches, dizziness, intoxication).

The liquid-phase oxidation of toluene by air is an environmentally benign process to produce benzoic acid and benzaldehyde. In a bubble column (diameter of 48 mm) reactor, the kinetics of the oxidation reaction was investigated under conditions similar to those of commercial operations.

Based on the compositional analysis results of the oxidation products and the Cited by: Henry's Law constant (water solution) k H (T) = k°H exp(d(ln(kH))/d(1/T) ((1/T) - 1/( K))) k°H = Henry's law constant for solubility in water at K (mol/kg*bar) d(ln(kH))/d(1/T) =.

1. Introduction. Toluene is the most important aromatic hydrocarbon. Scientists have been interested in the selective oxidation of toluene with air to synthesize benzaldehyde and benzyl alcohol, which is versatile intermediates in the chemical the present oxidation of toluene with air could not produce benzaldehyde and benzyl alcohol because it Cited by: The action level is considered to be protective of public health.

Breathing toluene for a lifetime at 1, ppbv is very unlikely to be harmful to people. If toluene concentrations in air are above the action level, we recommend taking action to halt exposure.

Most people can smell toluene at levels between g: air book. An aromatic hydrocarbon, toluene is lighter than water in its liquid form, but three times heavier than air as a vapor, has high affinity for lipids (log octanol/water partition coefficient = ) and is flammable with a low flash point (the lowest temperature at which it can vaporize to form an ignitable mixture in air) of ° by: Abstract.

The oxidation of toluene was studied in a jet-stirred reactor at 1 atm. New experimental results were obtained over the high temperature range – K, and variable equivalence ratio ( ⩽ φ ⩽ ). Concentration profiles of reactants, stable intermediates and final products were measured by probe sampling followed by on-line.
