General Population Exposure to Pentachlorophenol
General population exposure to pentachlorophenol (PCP) is considered universal. PCP is an ubiquitous chemical found in air, water, soil, food and house dust as well as in many consumer products. Exposure has been estimated by measurement of PCP in the various media to which people are exposed as well as by modeling based on measurement of PCP in human urine, serum and various body organs. Four recently published estimates of average population exposure are in reasonable agreement with values of 11 to 23 /μg day).
