EC number: 295-405-4
CAS number: 92045-23-3
A complex combination of hydrocarbons produced by the distillation of the products of a steam cracking process. It consists predominantly of hydrocarbons having a carbon number of C4, predominantly 1-butene and 2-butene, containing also butane and isobutene and boiling in the range of approximately minus 12°C to 5°C (10.4°F to 41°F).
DN(M)EL for acute effects should be derived if an acute
hazard leading to acute toxicity (eg. C&L) has been
identified and there is a potential for high peak
exposures. This is not the case with members of this
marker substance with the highest relative hazard
potential was selected. Long term systemic effects are
therefore defined by the carcinogenicity of
1,3-butadiene in humans.
The DMEL of 2.21 is equivalent to 1ppm.

main use of hydrocarbon streams are as
intermediates and monomers, hence
exposure of the general population is
likely to be low.
