    hexachlorobenzene-sources, remediation and future prospects Article (PDF Available) in International Journal of Current Research 05(01) February . Hexachlorobenzene is an animal carcinogen and is considered to be a probable human carcinogen. Six-week-old hamsters given relatively high doses (up to mg/kg) in their diet for a lifespan developed liver and thyroid tumors. Mice fed for two years had liver cell tumors the low doses ( mg/kg/day). Organ Toxicity.

    1. Introduction. Embryonic stem (ES) cells are derived from the inner cell mass (ICM) of blastocyte stage (day ) embryos [].Due to their intrinsic properties, ES cells can be differentiated in culture into specific cell lineages with potential applications for the treatment of diseases such as spinal cord injuries, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, muscle damage, bone Cited by: Global hexachlorobenzene emissions Article Literature Review in Chemosphere 43(2) May with 50 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

      Abstract. Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) was used as a fungicide, and as an intermediate in the production of pentachlorophenol and other pesticides. In addition, it is generated unintentionally in a number of industrial processes involving chlorine and organic compounds, such as the production of chlorinated solvents, or processes involving chlorine . mg Reference Item of Hexachlorobenzene was accurately weighed and transferred in a 10 ml volumetric flask and was dissolved and made to volume with chloroform, the stock solution was labeled as R5-L R5-L was then diluted by pipetting ml into a 10 ml volumetric flask, dissolving and making to volume with Size: KB.

Hexachlorobenzene is a white Hexachlorobenzene book solid which is not very soluble in water. (1) The odor threshold for hexachlorobenzene is not available.

The chemical formula for hexachlorobenzene is C 6 Cl 6, and the molecular weight is g/mol. (1) The vapor pressure for hexachlorobenzene is × mm Hg at 20 °C, and it has a log octanol. Hexachlorobenzene is a stable, white, crystalline chlorinated hydrocarbon that emits very toxic fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrochloric acid and other chlorinated compounds when heated to decomposition.

Hexachlorobenzene was used as a fungicide and was also used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of dyes, synthesis of organic chemicals, rubber. Evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by exposure to hexachlorobenzene (HCB).

HCB has historically had many industrial and agricultural uses, including extensive use as a seed dressing to prevent fungal disease on grains. Although concerns about effects on health and the environment prompted many countries to discontinue Author: IPCS.

Hexachlorobenzene is a white crystalline solid. This compound does not occur naturally. It is formed as a by-product during the manufacture of chemicals used as solvents (substances used to dissolve other substances), other chlorine-containing compounds, and pesticides.

Small amounts of hexachlorobenzene can also be produced during combustion. @article{osti_, title = {Hexachlorobenzene (HCB): a review}, author = {Courtney, K D}, abstractNote = {Current knowledge about hexachlorobenzene (HCB) is reviewed.

HCB is not a naturally occurring compound and is known to accumulate in both terrestrial and marine animals. The toxicity to human beings of long-term low level exposure to HCB is discussed.

Reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen First listed in the Third Annual Report on Carcinogens () Cl Cl Cl Cl Cl Cl Carcinogenicity Hexachlorobenzene is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcin-ogen based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in experimental Size: KB.

Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) is widely known because of its indestructibility and capacity to pass from grain through cattle and into humans. Legislation against chlorinated hydrocarbons being found in the human food chain is very harsh, and hexachlorobenzene is a prime target for public health veterinarians.

It has a low aqueous solubility and is volatile with a low potential for leaching to groundwater. It may be very persistent in soil systems. Hexachlorobenzene las a low mammalian toxicity but a high potential to bioaccumulate.

It may also be carcinogenic. Get this from a library. Hexachlorobenzene. [R Newhook; W Dormer; International Program on Chemical Safety.; United Nations Environment Programme.; International Labour Organisation.; World Health Organization.; Inter-Organization Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals.; WHO Task Group on Environmental Health Criteria for Hexachlorobenzene.] -.

Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) has not been used commercially in Canada sincealthough it is released to the Canadian environment in trace amounts as a by-product from the manufacture and use of chlorinated solvents and pesticides, through long-range transport and deposition, and "in emissions" from incinerators and other industrial processes.

Hexachlorobenzene was also found to be positive in a DNA-cell- binding (DCB) assay in the presence of Iysozyme and rat liver extract (Ku- binski et al., This assay was based on the observation that nucleic acids, including DNA, form complexes with proteins and with other nu- cleic acid molecules in the presence of active carcinogens.

Few recent data on the quantities of hexachlorobenzene produced are available. Worldwide production of pure hexachlorobenzene was estimated to be 10 t/year for the years – Hexachlorobenzene was produced or imported in the European Community at t/year inand a company in Spain reportedly produced an estimated t/year.

Its structure and properties are shown in Table 1. HCB is a synthetic organic compound with no natural sources. Hexachlorobenzene will remain in your body, especially in fat, for years. A large portion of hexachlorobenzene in fat can be transferred in human milk.

Exposure. You may be exposed to hexachlorobenzene if you live near an industrial site where hexachlorobenzene is used or produced as a by-product, or a waste dump where it has been discarded.The distribution and excretion of hexabromobenzene and hexachlorobenzene were studied in male Wistar-rats fed mg of hexabromobenzene or hexachlorobenzene orally in 1 ml of corn oil.

On the first day, 10% of the hexabromobenzene dose and 5% of the hexachlorobenzene dose was detected in the feces; very minimal excretion of hexabromobenzene in feces was found .Define hexachlorobenzene.
