Dimethyl sulfate (HSG 29, 1989) (4140 words)
SUMMARY AND EVALUATION 2.1 Human Exposure to Dimethyl Sulfate Exposure of the skin and eyes, or the respiratory tract, to dimethyl sulfate may occur and the main effect is severe local inflammation that develops without sensory irritation at the moment of contact.
On the eye, dimethyl sulfate produces toxic effects similar to those of methanol and it is probable that its toxicity is in part a direct result of the dissolved methanol moiety of the molecule as well as being a result of alkylation reactions.
The toxicity of dimethyl sulfate is such that it should be handled only within organizations having the resources and ability to carry out the engineering controls, workplace monitoring, sophisticated personal protection, occupational health surveillance, and emission treatment and control necessary to protect the work-force, the community, and the environment.
