Two-generation reproduction study on commercial hexane solvent. W.C. Daughtrey et al. J. Appl. Toxicol., September--October 1994, 14 (5), 387--393.

The reproductive effects of inhalation exposure to commercial hexane vapours were evaluated in Sprague-Dawley rats. The experimental methods are described and the exposure of rats to these vapours for two generations resulted in reduced body weight gain at the high dose of 9000 ppm but no adverse effects on reproduction. These findings suggest that occupational exposure to commercial hexane vapours at currently recommended TLV concentrations should not pose a reproduction hazard. 24 refs.
