Irritant fumes


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Irritant gases and vapours
Nature:

Irritant gases and vapours comprise a wide array of chemicals whose common characteristic is the action exerted on the respiratory system and conjunctivae. The intensity and severity of the irritant depends on the chemical structure of the substance, the concentration in the respired air, and the length of exposure. The substance's solubility may be a factor since it determines the region of the respiratory tract that is exposed to the irritant.
