IARC Monographs Volume 117: Pentachlorophenol and Some Related Compounds

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to announce that the IARC Monographs volume on pentachlorophenol and some related compounds is now available online.

This volume includes four monographs: pentachlorophenol, 2,4,6-trichlorophenol, 3,3′,4,4′-tetrachloroazobenzene, and aldrin and dieldrin.

Exposure to all five agents considered may occur in the general population as well as in various occupational settings. An IARC Monographs Working Group reviewed epidemiological evidence, animal bioassays, and mechanistic and other relevant data to reach conclusions as to the carcinogenic hazard to humans of these agents.
