ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Cyclopentane is an alicyclic hydrocarbon which causes central nervous system depression.
- Symptoms of exposure (inhalation, dermal) to high concentrations include excitement, dizziness, confusion, coma, and possibly respiratory failure (Bingham et al, 2001; Gerarde, 1963).
- Ingestion may cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract and result in nausea and vomiting.
- Very little work has been done on cyclopentane itself; much of the toxicity reported is based on n-pentane and other alicyclic hydrocarbons (ACGIH, 1986).
