■ Sensory irritants are chemicals that produce temporary and undesirable side-effects on the eyes, nose or
throat. Historically occupational exposure standards for these irritants have been based on observation ofworkers' responses to various airborne concentrations. Present day expectations require that nearly everyindividual should be protected against even minor sensory irritation and exposure standards are establishedusing uncertainty factors or safety factors of 5 to 10 or more. On occasion animal no-observable-effect-levels (NOEL) are used to determine these limits where human results are unavailable. An additional approach,typically used by the TLV committee (USA) in determining respiratory standards for this group of chemicals,has been to assign ceiling values (TLV C) to rapidly acting irritants and to assign short-term exposurelimits (TLV STELs) when the weight of evidence from irritation, bioaccumulation and other endpoints combine

to warrant such a limit. In contrast the MAK Commission (Germany) uses a five-category system based onintensive odour, local irritation, and elimination half-life. However this system is being replaced to beconsistent with the European Union (EU) Scientific Committee for Occupational Exposure Limits (SCOEL); thisis more closely allied to that of the USA.
OSHA (USA) concluded that exposure to sensory irritants can:- cause inflammation- cause increased susceptibility to other irritants and infectious agents- lead to permanent injury or dysfunction- permit greater absorption of hazardous substances and- acclimate the worker to the irritant warning properties of these substances thus increasing the risk of
■ Odour Threshold Value: 3.6 ppm (detection), 699 ppm (recognition)Saturation vapour concentration: 237000 ppm @ 20 CNOTE: Detector tubes measuring in excess of 40 ppm, are available. Exposure at or below the recommended TLV-TWA is thought to protect the worker against mild irritation
associated with brief exposures and the bioaccumulation, chronic irritation of the respiratory tract andheadaches associated with long-term acetone exposures. The NIOSH REL-TWA is substantially lower and has takeninto account slight irritation experienced by volunteer subjects at 300 ppm. Mild irritation to acclimatisedworkers begins at about 750 ppm - unacclimatised subjects will experience irritation at about 350-500 ppm butacclimatisation can occur rapidly. Disagreement between the peak bodies is based largely on the view by ACGIHthat widespread use of acetone, without evidence of significant adverse health effects at higherconcentrations, allows acceptance of a higher limit.
Half-life of acetone in blood is 3 hours which means that no adjustment for shift-length has to be made
with reference to the standard 8 hour/day, 40 hours per week because body clearance occurs within any shiftwith low potential for accumulation.

■ For toluene:Odour Threshold Value: 0.16-6.7 (detection), 1.9-69 (recognition)NOTE: Detector tubes measuring in excess of 5 ppm, are available. High concentrations of toluene in the air produce depression of the central nervous system (CNS) in
humans. Intentional toluene exposure (glue-sniffing) at maternally-intoxicating concentration has alsoproduced birth defects. Foetotoxicity appears at levels associated with CNS narcosis and probably occurs onlyin those with chronic toluene-induced kidney failure. Exposure at or below the recommended TLV-TWA is thoughtto prevent transient headache and irritation, to provide a measure of safety for possible disturbances tohuman reproduction, the prevention of reductions in cognitive responses reported amongst humans inhalinggreater than 40 ppm, and the significant risks of hepatotoxic, behavioural and nervous system effects(including impaired reaction time and incoordination). Although toluene/ethanol interactions are wellrecognised, the degree of protection afforded by the TLV-TWA among drinkers is not known.
Odour Safety Factor(OSF)OSF=17 (TOLUENE).
■ For n-hexane:Odour Threshold Value: 65 ppmNOTE: Detector tubes for n-hexane, measuring in excess of 100 ppm, are available commercially. Occupational polyneuropathy may result from exposures as low as 500 ppm (as hexane), whilst nearly
continuous exposures of 250 ppm have caused neurotoxic effects in animals. Many literature reports havefailed to distinguish hexane from n-hexane and on the assumption that the commercial hexane contains 30% n-hexane, a worst case recommendation for TLV is assumed to reduce the risk of peripheral neuropathies (due tothe metabolites 2,5-heptanedione and 3,6-octanedione) and other adverse neuropathic effects.
Concurrent exposure to chemicals (including MEK) and drugs which induce hepatic liver oxidative metabolism
can reduce the time for neuropathy to appear.

PERSONAL PROTECTION EYE ■ - Safety glasses with side shields. - Chemical goggles. - Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lens or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemicals in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily available. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at the first signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS ■ Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard. Well- designed engineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide this high level of protection. The basic types of engineering controls are: Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk. Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilation that strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment. Ventilation can remove or dilute an air contaminant if designed properly. The design of a ventilation system must match the particular process and chemical or contaminant in use. Employers may need to use multiple types of controls to prevent employee overexposure.
For flammable liquids and flammable gases, local exhaust ventilation or a process enclosure ventilationsystem may be required. Ventilation equipment should be explosion-resistant.

Considered an unlikely route of entry in commercial/industrial environments. The liquid may produce gastrointestinal discomfort and may be harmful if swallowed. Ingestion may result in nausea, pain and vomiting. Vomit entering the lungs by aspiration may cause potentially lethal chemical pneumonitis. Central nervous system (CNS) depression may include general discomfort, symptoms of giddiness, headache, dizziness, nausea, anaesthetic effects, slowed reaction time, slurred speech and may progress to unconsciousness. Serious poisonings may result in respiratory depression and may be fatal. EYE ■ There is evidence that material may produce eye irritation in some persons and produce eye damage 24 hours or more after instillation. Severe inflammation may be expected with pain. There may be damage to the cornea. Unless treatment is prompt and adequate there may be permanent loss of vision. Conjunctivitis can occur following repeated exposure. The liquid produces a high level of eye discomfort and is capable of causing pain and severe conjunctivitis. Corneal injury may develop, with possible permanent impairment of vision, if not promptly and adequately treated. SKIN ■ Entry into the blood-stream, through, for example, cuts, abrasions or lesions, may produce systemic injury with harmful effects. Examine the skin prior to the use of the material and ensure that any external damage is suitably protected. The material may accentuate any pre-existing dermatitis condition. The material may cause moderate inflammation of the skin either following direct contact or after a delay of some time. Repeated exposure can cause contact dermatitis which is characterised by redness, swelling and blistering. INHALED ■ Inhalation of high concentrations of gas/vapour causes lung irritation with coughing and nausea, central nervous depression with headache and dizziness, slowing of reflexes, fatigue and inco-ordination. If exposure to highly concentrated solvent atmosphere is prolonged this may lead to narcosis, unconsciousness, even coma and possible death. continued.

Inhalation of vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness. This may be accompanied by sleepiness, reducedalertness, loss of reflexes, lack of co-ordination, and vertigo. Ketone vapours irritate the nose, throat and mucous membrane. High concentrations depress the central nervoussystem, causing headache, vertigo, poor concentration, sleep and failure of the heart and breathing. Someketones can cause multiple nerve disorders, inducing "pins and needles" and weakness in the limbs. Inhalation of acetone causes central nervous system depression, light-headedness, incoherent speech, inco-ordination, stupor, low blood pressure, fast pulse, metabolic acidosis, high blood sugar and ketosis. Rarely,convulsions and tubular necrosis may be evident. Other symptoms of exposure may include restlessness,headache, vomiting, low blood pressure and rapid and irregular pulse, eye and throat irritation, weakness ofthe legs and dizziness. Inhalation of high concentrations may produce dryness of the mouth and throat, nausea,inco-ordinated movement, loss of co-ordinated speech, drowsiness, and in severe cases, coma. Inhalation ofacetone vapours over long periods causes irritation of the airways, coughing and headache. Rats exposed to aconcentration of 5.22% for 1 hour showed clear signs of sleepiness; deaths occurred at 12.66%. CHRONIC HEALTH EFFECTS ■ Harmful: danger of serious damage to health by prolonged exposure through inhalation. Harmful: danger of serious damage to health by prolonged exposure through inhalation. This material can cause serious damage if one is exposed to it for long periods. It can be assumed that it contains a substance which can produce severe defects. This has been demonstrated via both short- and long- term experimentation. Based on experience with animal studies, exposure to the material may result in toxic effects to the development of the foetus, at levels which do not cause significant toxic effects to the mother. Workers exposed to acetone for long periods showed inflammation of the airways, stomach and small bowel, attacks of giddiness and loss of strength. Exposure to acetone may enhance the liver toxicity of chlorinated solvents. Chronic solvent inhalation exposures may result in nervous system impairment and liver and blood changes. [PATTYS].

Acetone is not a skin irritant or sensitiser but is a defatting agentto the skin. Acetone is an eye irritant. The subchronic toxicity of acetone has been examined in mice andrats that were administered acetone in the drinking water and again in rats treated by oral gavage. Acetone-induced increases in relative kidney weight changes were observed in male and female rats used in the oral 13-week study. Acetone treatment caused increases in the relative liver weight in male and female rats that werenot associated with histopathologic effects and the effects may have been associated with microsomal enzymeinduction. Haematologic effects consistent with macrocytic anaemia were also noted in male rats along withhyperpigmentation in the spleen. The most notable findings in the mice were increased liver and decreasedspleen weights. Overall, the no-observed-effect-levels in the drinking water study were 1% for male rats (900mg/kg/d) and male mice (2258 mg/kg/d), 2% for female mice (5945 mg/kg/d), and 5% for female rats (3100mg/kg/d).

665 mg/m3 and in rats at 26,100 mg/m3. The no-observable-effect level for developmental toxicity wasdetermined to be 5220 mg/m3 for both rats and mice. Teratogenic effects were not observed in rats and mice tested at 26,110 and 15,665 mg/m3, respectively. Lifetime dermal carcinogenicity studies in mice treated with up to 0.2 mL of acetone did not reveal anyincrease in organ tumor incidence relative to untreated control animals. The scientific literature contains many different studies that have measured either the neurobehaviouralperformance or neurophysiological response of humans exposed to acetone. Effect levels ranging from about 600to greater than 2375 mg/m3 have been reported. Neurobehavioral studies with acetone-exposed employees haverecently shown that 8-hr exposures in excess of 2375 mg/m3 were not associated with any dose-related changesin response time, vigilance, or digit span scores. Clinical case studies, controlled human volunteer studies,animal research, and occupational field evaluations all indicate that the NOAEL for this effect is 2375 mg/m3or greater.

For toluene:Acute ToxicityHumans exposed to intermediate to high levels of toluene for short periods of time experience adverse centralnervous system effects ranging from headaches to intoxication, convulsions, narcosis, and death. Similareffects are observed in short-term animal studies. Humans - Toluene ingestion or inhalation can result in severe central nervous system depression, and in largedoses, can act as a narcotic. The ingestion of about 60 mL resulted in fatal nervous system depression within30 minutes in one reported case. Constriction and necrosis of myocardial fibers, markedly swollen liver, congestion and haemorrhage of thelungs and acute tubular necrosis were found on autopsy. Central nervous system effects (headaches, dizziness, intoxication) and eye irritation occurred followinginhalation exposure to 100 ppm toluene 6 hours/day for 4 days. Exposure to 600 ppm for 8 hours resulted in the same and more serious symptoms including euphoria, dilatedpupils, convulsions, and nausea . Exposure to 10,000-30,000 ppm has been reported to cause narcosis and deathToluene can also strip the skin of lipids causing dermatitisAnimals - The initial effects are instability and incoordination, lachrymation and sniffles (respiratoryexposure), followed by narcosis. Animals die of respiratory failure from severe nervous system depression. Cloudy swelling of the kidneys was reported in rats following inhalation exposure to 1600 ppm, 18-20hours/day for 3 daysSubchronic/Chronic Effects:Repeat doses of toluene cause adverse central nervous system effects and can damage the upper respiratorysystem, the liver, and the kidney. Adverse effects occur as a result from both oral and the inhalationexposures. A reported lowest-observed-effect level in humans for adverse neurobehavioral effects is 88 ppm. Humans - Chronic occupational exposure and incidences of toluene abuse have resulted in hepatomegaly andliver function changes. It has also resulted in nephrotoxicity and, in one case, was a cardiac sensitiser andfatal cardiotoxin. Neural and cerebellar dystrophy were reported in several cases of habitual "glue sniffing." Anepidemiological study in France on workers chronically exposed to toluene fumes reported leukopenia andneutropenia. Exposure levels were not given in the secondary reference; however, the average urinaryexcretion of hippuric acid, a metabolite of toluene, was given as 4 g/L compared to a normal level of 0.6 g/LAnimals - The major target organs for the subchronic/chronic toxicity of toluene are the nervous system,liver, and kidney. Depressed immune response has been reported in male mice given doses of 105 mg/kg/day for28 days. Toluene in corn oil administered to F344 male and female rats by gavage 5 days/week for 13 weeks,induced prostration, hypoactivity, ataxia, piloerection, lachrymation, excess salivation, and body tremors atdoses 2500 mg/kg. Liver, kidney, and heart weights were also increased at this dose and histopathologiclesions were seen in the liver, kidneys, brain and urinary bladder. The no-observed-adverse effect level

(NOAEL) for the study was 312 mg/kg (223 mg/kg/day) and the lowest-observed-adverse effect level (LOAEL) forthe study was 625 mg/kg (446 mg/kg/day) . Developmental/Reproductive ToxicityExposures to high levels of toluene can result in adverse effects in the developing human foetus. Severalstudies have indicated that high levels of toluene can also adversely effect the developing offspring inlaboratory animals. Humans - Variable growth, microcephaly, CNS dysfunction, attentional deficits, minor craniofacial and limbabnormalities, and developmental delay were seen in three children exposed to toluene in utero as a result ofmaternal solvent abuse before and during pregnancyAnimals - Sternebral alterations, extra ribs, and missing tails were reported following treatment of ratswith 1500 mg/m3 toluene 24 hours/day during days 9-14 of gestation. Two of the dams died during the exposure. Another group of rats received 1000 mg/m3 8 hours/day during days 1-21 of gestation. No maternal deaths ortoxicity occurred, however, minor skeletal retardation was present in the exposed fetuses. CFLP Mice wereexposed to 500 or 1500 mg/m3 toluene continuously during days 6-13 of pregnancy. All dams died at the highdose during the first 24 hours of exposure, however none died at 500 mg/m3. Decreased foetal weight wasreported, but there were no differences in the incidences of skeletal malformations or anomalies between thetreated and control offspring. Absorption - Studies in humans and animals have demonstrated that toluene is readily absorbed via the lungsand the gastrointestinal tract. Absorption through the skin is estimated at about 1% of that absorbed by thelungs when exposed to toluene vapor. Dermal absorption is expected to be higher upon exposure to the liquid; however, exposure is limited by therapid evaporation of toluene . Distribution - In studies with mice exposed to radiolabeled toluene by inhalation, high levels ofradioactivity were present in body fat, bone marrow, spinal nerves, spinal cord, and brain white matter. Lower levels of radioactivity were present in blood, kidney, and liver. Accumulation of toluene has generallybeen found in adipose tissue, other tissues with high fat content, and in highly vascularised tissues . Metabolism - The metabolites of inhaled or ingested toluene include benzyl alcohol resulting from thehydroxylation of the methyl group. Further oxidation results in the formation of benzaldehyde and benzoicacid. The latter is conjugated with glycine to yield hippuric acid or reacted with glucuronic acid to formbenzoyl glucuronide. o-cresol and p-cresol formed by ring hydroxylation are considered minor metabolitesExcretion - Toluene is primarily (60-70%) excreted through the urine as hippuric acid. The excretion ofbenzoyl glucuronide accounts for 10-20%, and excretion of unchanged toluene through the lungs also accountsfor 10-20%. Excretion of hippuric acid is usually complete within 24 hours after exposure.

TOLUENE:N-HEXANE:ACETONE:■ DO NOT discharge into sewer or waterways.
ACETONE:■ For Ketones: Ketones, unless they are alpha, beta--unsaturated ketones, can be considered as narcosis orbaseline toxicity compounds. Aquatic Fate: Hydrolysis of ketones in water is thermodynamically favourable only for low molecular weightketones. Reactions with water are reversible with no permanent change in the structure of the ketonesubstrate. Ketones are stable to water under ambient environmental conditions. When pH levels are greaterthan 10, condensation reactions can occur which produce higher molecular weight products. Under ambientconditions of temperature, pH, and low concentration, these condensation reactions are unfavourable. Based onits reactions in air, it seems likely that ketones undergo photolysis in water. Terrestrial Fate: It is probable that ketones will be biodegraded by micro-organisms in soil and water.
Ketones are unlikely to bioconcentrate or biomagnify.
For Acetone: log Kow : -0.24;Half-life (hr) air : 312-1896;Half-life (hr) H2O surface water : 20;Henry's atm m3 /mol : 3.67E-05BOD 5: 0.31-1.76,46-55%COD: 1.12-2.07ThOD: 2.2BCF: 0.69. Environmental Fate: The relatively long half-life allows acetone to be transported long distances from itsemission source. Atmospheric Fate: Acetone preferentially locates in the air compartment when released to the environment. Inair, acetone is lost by photolysis and reaction with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals; theestimated half-life of these combined processes is about 22 days. Air Quality Standards: none available. Terrestrial Fate: Very little acetone is expected to reside in soil, biota, or suspended solids and has lowpropensity for soil absorption and a high preference for moving through the soil and into the ground water. Acetone released to soil volatilizes although some may leach into the ground where it rapidly biodegrades. Soil Guidelines: none available. Aquatic Fate:
A substantial amount of acetone can also be found in water. Acetone is highly soluble and
slightly persistent in water, with a half-life of about 20 hours Drinking Water Standard: none available. Ecotoxicity: Acetone does not concentrate in the food chain, is minimally toxic to aquatic life and isconsidered to be readily biodegradable. Testing shows that acetone exhibits a low order of toxicity for brooktrout, fathead minnow, Japanese quail, ring-neck pheasant and water fleas. Low toxicity for aquaticinvertebrates. For aquatic plants, NOEC: 5400-7500 mg/L. Acetone vapours were shown to be relatively toxic toflour beetle and flour moths and their eggs. The direct application of acetone liquid to the body of theinsects or surface of the eggs did not, however, cause any mortality. The ability of acetone to inhibit cellmultiplication has been examined in a wide variety of microorganisms. Mild to moderate toxicity occurred inbacteria exposed to acetone for 6-4 days however, overall data indicates a low degree of toxicity foracetone. The only exception to these findings was the results obtained with the flagellated protozoa(Entosiphon sulcatum).

ThOD - 3.13 ; BCF - 1.67-380;log BCF - 0.22-3.28. Atmospheric Fate: The majority of toluene evaporates to the atmosphere from the water and soil. The maindegradation pathway for toluene in the atmosphere is reaction with photochemically produced hydroxylradicals. The estimated atmospheric half life for toluene is about 13 hours. Toluene is also oxidized byreactions with atmospheric nitrogen dioxide, oxygen, and ozone, but these are minor degradation pathways. Photolysis is not considered a significant degradative pathway for toluene. Terrestrial Fate: Toluene is moderately retarded by adsorption to soils rich in organic material, therefore,transport to ground water is dependent on soil composition. In unsaturated topsoil containing organicmaterial, it has been estimated that 97% of the toluene is adsorbed to the soil and only about 2% is in thesoil-water phase and transported with flowing groundwater. There is little retardation in sandy soils and 2-13% of the toluene was estimated to migrate with flowing water; the remainder was volatilized, biodegraded,or unaccounted for. In saturated deep soils with no soil-air phase, about 48% may be transported with flowinggroundwater. In surface soil, volatilization to air is an important fate process for toluene. In theenvironment, biodegradation of toluene to carbon dioxide occurs with a typical half life of 1-7 days. Aquatic Fate:
An important fate process for toluene is volatilization, the rate of which depends on the
amount of turbulence in the surface water. The volatilization of toluene from static water has a half life of1-16 days, whereas from turbulent water the half life is 5-6 hours. Degradation of toluene in surface wateroccurs primarily by biodegradation with a half life of less than one day under favorable conditions (presenceof microorganisms, microbial adaptation, and optimum temperature). Biodegradation also occurs in shallowgroundwater and in salt water (at a reduced rate). No data are available on anaerobic degradation of toluenein deep ground water conditions where aerobic degradation would be minimal. Ecotoxicity: Bioaccumulation in the food chain is predicted to be low. Toluene has moderate acute toxicity toaquatic organisms. Toluene is, on the average, slightly toxic to fathead minnow, guppies and goldfish and notacutely toxic to bluegill or channel catfish and crab. Toluene, on the average, is slightly toxic tocrustaceans specifically, shrimp species including grass shrimp and daggerblade grass shrimp. Toluene has anegative effect on green algae during their growth phase.
N-HEXANE:■ Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment. Do NOT allow product to come in contact with surface waters or to intertidal areas below the mean high watermark. Do not contaminate water when cleaning equipment or disposing of equipment wash-waters. Wastes resulting from use of the product must be disposed of on site or at approved waste sites. For n-hexane:log Kow: 3.17-3.94BOD 5 if unstated: 2.21COD: 0.04ThOD: 3.52Environmental fate:Transport and Partitioning: The physical properties of n-hexane that affect its transport and partitioning inthe environment are: water solubility of 9.5 mg/L; log[Kow] (octanol/water partition coefficient), estimatedas 3.29; Henry’s law constant, 1.69 atm-m3 mol; vapor pressure, 150 mm Hg at 25 C; and log[Koc] in the rangeof 2.90 to 3.61. As with many alkanes, experimental methods for the estimation of the Koc parameter arelacking, so that estimates must be made based on theoretical considerations. The dominant transport process from water is volatilization. Based on mathematical models the half-life for n-hexane in bodies of water with any degree of turbulent mixing (e.g., rivers) would be less than 3 hours. Forstanding bodies of water (e.g. small ponds), a half-life no longer than one week (6.8 days) is estimatedBased on the log octanol/water partition coefficient (i.e. log[Koc]) and the estimated log sorptioncoefficient (i.e. log[Koc]) n-hexane is not expected to become concentrated in biota. A calculatedbioconcentration factor (BCF) of 453 for a fathead minnow further suggests a low potential for n-hexane tobioconcentrate or bioaccumulate in trophic food chains. In soil, the dominant transport mechanism for n-hexane present near the surface probably is volatilisation(based on its Henry’s law constant, water solubility, vapor pressure, and Koc). While its estimated Kocvalues suggest a moderate ability to sorb to soil particles, n-hexane has a density (0.6603 g/mL at 20 C)well below that of water and a very low water solubility of 9.5 mg/L. n-Hexane would, therefore, be viewed asa light nonaqueous phase liquid (LNAPL), which would suggest a low potential for leaching into the lower soildepths since the n-hexane would tend to float on the top of the saturated zone of the water table. n-Hexane

would generally stay near the soil surface and, if not appreciably sorbed into the soil matrix, would beexpected eventually to volatilise to the atmosphere. Exceptions would involve locations with shallowgroundwater tables where there were large spills of hexane products. In such cases, the n-hexane could spreadout to contaminant a large volume of soil materials. Air: n-Hexane does not absorb ultraviolet (UV) light at 290 nm and is thus not expected to undergo directphotolysis reactions. The dominant tropospheric removal mechanism for n-hexane is generally regarded to bedecomposition by hydroxyl radicals. Calculations assuming typical hydroxyl radical concentrations suggest ahalf-life of approximately 2.9 days. While n-hexane can react with nitrogen oxides to produce ozoneprecursors under controlled laboratory conditions, the smog-producing potential of n-hexane is very lowcompared to that of other alkanes or chlorinated VOCs. Hydroxyl ion reactions in the upper troposphere,therefore, are probably the primary mechanisms for n-hexane degradation in the atmosphere. As with mostalkanes, n-hexane is resistant to hydrolysisWater: Although few data are available dealing explicitly with the biodegradation of n-hexane in water,neither hydrolysis nor biodegradation in surface waters appears to be rapid compared with volatilization. Insurface waters, as in the atmosphere, alkanes such as n-hexane would be resistant to hydrolysis. Biodegradation is probably the most significant degradation mechanism in groundwater. The ability ofPseudomonas mendocina bacteria to metabolise n-hexane in laboratory microcosms simulating groundwaterconditions has been documented. Mixed bacterial cultures as well as pure cultures are documented as capableof metabolizing n-hexane under aerobic conditions. In general, linear alkanes (such as n-hexane) are viewedas the most readily biodegradable fractions in petroleum , particularly when oxygen is present in solution. Once introduced into groundwater, n-hexane may be fairly persistent since its degradation by chemicalhydrolysis is slow and opportunities for biodegradation may be limited under anoxic conditions or wherenutrients such as nitrogen or phosphorus are in limited supply. Sediment and Soil: The most important biodegradation processes involve the conversion of the n-hexane toprimary alcohols, aldehydes and, ultimately, into fatty acids. Similar processes are encountered with otherlight hydrocarbons such as heptane. In general, unless the n-hexane is buried at some depth within a soil orsediment, volatilisation is generally assumed to occur at a much more rapid rate than chemical or biochemicaldegradation processes. Once introduced into deeper sediments, n-hexane may be fairly persistent.
