    Abstract

    Ikeda, Masayuki, and Ohtsuji, Hatsue (1969).Brit. J. industr. Med.,26, 244-246. Significance of urinary hippuric acid determination as an index of toluene exposure. Urine samples from 118 male workers in photogravure printing factories were analysed for hippuric acid. The urinary levels of hippuric acid were proportional to the environmental concentrations of toluene, although within wide variations. The urinary concentration of hippuric acid corresponding to 200 p.p.m. of toluene was 3·5 g./litre (specific gravity 1·016) or 4·3 g./g. creatinine.
