Workers may also be exposed to high chlorine concentrations if an accidental release occurs at a facility. Normal Human Levels Greater than 95% of the chlorine File Size: KB. IS CHLORINE DIOXIDE TOXIC? Before speaking about toxicity we must know the principles. The toxicity of the substance is defined by: 1. The amount of toxic 2. The place where it affects 3. Concentration 4. The duration of exposure The first basic principle of toxicology: “The amount makes the poison” (Paracelsus) this is precisely why [ ]. Chlorine Hazard Summary Chlorine is a commonly used household cleaner and disinfectant. Chlorine is a potent irritant to the eyes, the upper respiratory tract, and lungs. Chronic (long-term) exposure to chlorine gas in workers has resulted in respiratory effects, including eye and throat irritation and airflow obstruction.   Toxic Mechanism: Chlorine reacts with water in the respiratory tract to form hydrochloric acid, hypochlorous acid and it activates a free radial cascade bia reactive oxygen species. Overall this causes an inflammatory response to the respiratory tract and corrosive injury to moist skin, eyes and the upper respiratory tract.

Doctors give trusted answers on uses, effects, side-effects, and cautions: Dr. Fowler on chlorine toxicity: I do not know what you mean by white strips. Please ask your question again. Container may explode in heat of fire. Vapor explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Hydrogen and chlorine mixtures (%) are exploded by almost any form of energy (heat, sunlight, sparks, etc.). May combine with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes of hydrochloric acid. Emits highly toxic fumes when heated.   Chlorine can be “bubbled” out of water if the water is well aerated for several days in a container with a large surface area. Unlike straight chlorine, chloramine does not produce trihalomethanes that are toxic to humans, which is why it has become much more popular than chlorine in public water supplies.   Chloramine is a combination of Chlorine and Ammonia and is very stable in water. Where chlorine will usually evaporate after sitting for 24 hours, chloramines will stay stable in water for weeks. The information below is a collection of information compiled to assist people in checking to see if their municipal water supply uses chloramines [ ].

Boone, Ali Modarres,   The ATSDR toxicological profile succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for the hazardous substance described here. Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties. Other pertinent literature is also presented, but is described in less detail than the key studies. City of Commerce, Commerce, CA. K likes.

Chlorine gas is a by-product in the manufacture or incineration of glass, plastics, paints, and stains. It is released from refineries or as a result of chemical spills. Reducing air pollution at its source is the best solution to reduce damage to plants and people.
