Acrolein

CAS RN: 107-02-8

Range of Toxicity

A) Airborne levels as low as 10 to 150 ppm are potentially harmful to humans. An airborne concentration of 1 ppm produces marked eye, respiratory tract, and mucous membrane irritation in less than 5 minutes.
B) Death due to massive delayed onset acute lung injury has been reported following a "soaking" splash contact with concentrated acrolein solution.
C) Death occurred in an adult following a suspected ingestion of 250 mL of a pesticide containing 85% allyl alcohol, and is believed to be a result of cardiac arrest due to the presence of acrolein, the toxic metabolite of allyl alcohol.
