Abstract

Methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) is a fuel oxygenate additive. A study on 10 filling gasoline attendants, 8 urban policemen and 10 clerks was performed to evaluate exposure to gasoline vapours and traffic exhausts through the determination of urinary MTBE. Levels of urinary MTBE were similar in urban policeman and clerks but higher in filling gasoline attendants. These results show that this biological marker may be useful to evaluate exposure to gasoline vapours but not to traffic exhausts.
