The determination of n-hexane and toluene in urine was performed in 23 subjects who were occupationally exposed to n-hexane and in 8 subjects exposed to toluene, by means of the head space technique. A Hewlet-Packard 5880 A gas chromatograph supplied with Hewlett-Packard 5970 A Mass Selective Detector was employed. The Authors found significant correlations between urine concentration of the substance and environmental concentration (for n-hexane r = 0.866; for toluene r = 0.770.
