Ninety-day continuous animal exposures to ozone, nitrogen dioxide and carbon tetrachloride at Threshold Limit Values (TLV) were conducted under ambient pressure and 100% oxygen-reduced pressure (5 psia) conditions. Four species, dogs, monkeys, rats, and mice were exposed to each material. Guinea pigs were also used for ozone exposures due to their reported susceptibility to this pulmonary irritant. Minimal biologic responses were observed with exposure to each of the compounds tested and, consequently, lower tentative exposure limits are recommended for space cabin environments. The recommended limits, based on the time period tested, are 1 ppm for nitrogen dioxide, 0.01 ppm for ozone, and 0.5 ppm for carbon tetrachloride.
