butadiene

A conjugated diene gas released during the production of synthetic rubber and adiponitrile, an intermediate in nylon production. Short-term exposure causes irritation of mucous membranes, blurred vision, fatigue, headache and dizziness. Long-term exposure to 1+ ppm is cardiotoxic, and increases the risk of leukaemia and other cancer.

1,3-Butadiene exposure was associated with a higher RR for AML compared with ALL, but the summary estimates were statistically unstable, being based on two studies only.

In addition, it should be noted that 1,3-butadiene emissions are totally attributed to gasoline vehicles, while PM2.5 is mainly related with diesel engines.
1, [a.sub.0] is the independent term, [x.sub.i] represents the independent polymerization variables (DEAC/Nd ratio, reaction temperature, catalyst concentration, and 1,3-butadiene concentration), [y.sub.k] represents model responses (catalyst activity, molecular weight averages, and PDI), and [a.sub.i] and [a.sub.ij] are model parameters (variable effects).

The carcinogenicity of 1,3-butadiene is mediated through the creation of highly reactive epoxide intermediates formed during 1,3-butadiene metabolism, which damage DNA through the formation of DNA adducts (Goggin et al.
"Any release of carcinogens (like benzene, 1,3-butadiene) adds to the increased cancer risk for those living near these plants," Metzger said in an email.

To get an idea on the propagation rate of the polymerization of 1,3-butadiene with A1/Li/Ba/cyclohexane solutions a series of polymerizations was carried out by keeping constant the catalyst composition (1:1:0.25 of Al: Li: Ba molar ratio) and changing the polymerization temperature (40-80[degrees]C).
Researchers also found similar levels of toxic compounds such as benzene, 1,3-butadiene, ethyl benzene, toluene, xylene, and MTBE, all considered toxic by ARB and the U.S.
