Vinyl methyl ether

CAS RN:107-25-5

Health Effects

0.2.1 SUMMARY OF EXPOSURE
  • 0.2.1.1 ACUTE EXPOSURE
    • A) There is very little information available about the potential human health effects of butyl vinyl ether. No human poisoning cases have been described.
    • B) Butyl vinyl ether is mildly toxic by inhalation, ingestion, and skin contact.
    • C) Ethers as a class of agents have anesthetic and irritant properties. Similar vinyl ethers (ethyl vinyl ether and isopropyl vinyl ether) have been shown to have anesthetic properties with CNS depression in experimental animals.
    • D) Eye and dermal irritation may occur with exposure, and respiratory tract irritation may be predicted.
0.2.4 HEENT
  • 0.2.4.1 ACUTE EXPOSURE
    • A) Eye, nose, and throat irritation may be seen.
0.2.6 RESPIRATORY
  • 0.2.6.1 ACUTE EXPOSURE
    • A) Respiratory tract irritation has not been reported, but may be predicted from other irritant properties.
    • B) Respiratory depression could be seen from anesthetic effects.
0.2.7 NEUROLOGIC
  • 0.2.7.1 ACUTE EXPOSURE
    • A) Central nervous system depression could occur from anesthetic effects.
0.2.14 DERMATOLOGIC
  • 0.2.14.1 ACUTE EXPOSURE
    • A) Skin irritation may be noted.
0.2.20 REPRODUCTIVE HAZARDS
  • A) At the time of this review, no data were available to assess the potential effects of exposure to this agent during pregnancy or lactation.
0.2.21 CARCINOGENICITY
  • 0.2.21.1 IARC CATEGORY
    • A) IARC Carcinogenicity Ratings for CAS111-34-2 (International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), 2016; International Agency for Research on Cancer, 2015; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2010; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2010a; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2008; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2007; IARC Working Group on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans, 2006; IARC, 2004):
