Chlorophenols other than pentachlorophenol / published under the joint sponsorship of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization World Health Organization; International Programme on Chemical Safety (1989)Evaluates the risks to human health and the environment posed by the widespread manufacturing and use of chlorophenols other than pentachlorophenol. These organic chemicals are biocides effective against a large number of organisms, including bacteria, algae, mollusks, acarids, fungi, and moulds. Although agricultural use is now restricted in a number of countries, chlorophenols continue to be widely applied in wood treatment and preservation and in the surface treatment of freshly cut logs and lumber. Smaller amounts are also used as additives ...
