Abstract

Ethylene oxide is a colorless gas at room temperature and pressure with a sweet ethereal odor that can be detected at ~500 ppm. The primary human health concern with ethylene oxide under typical workplace exposure conditions is its potential carcinogenicity. Although ethylene oxide exhibits a low carcinogenic potency in animal models, epidemiological studies have not conclusively linked exposures to ethylene oxide with carcinogenic outcomes in humans.
