CAS 109-86-4 -

CAS Number:  109-86-4

Chemical Name:  Ethylene glycol monomethyl ether

Type of Toxicity:  developmental, male

Listing Mechanism:  State's Qualified Experts (SQE)

Date Listed:  1-Jan-89

NSRL (No Significant Risk Level) or MADL (Maximum Allowable Dose Level):  63 (oral) µg/day

Where a source or product results in exposures by multiple routes, the total exposure must be considered. For example, the MADL for benzene is exceeded when the absorbed dose exceeds 24 µg/day. If only inhalation and oral exposure occurs, the benzene MADL is exceeded when: (oral dose ÷ 24 µg/day) + (inhalation dose ÷ 49 µg/day) > 1.0.
