Disadvantages of Maleic Anhydride Derivatives

Maleic anhydride, also called MAH ,is an organic, white crystalline solid with an acrid odor. Maleic anhydride is used primarily in the formation of unsaturated polyester resins for use in boats, autos, trucks, buildings, piping, and electrical goods. Lube oil adhesives synthesized from maleic anhydride are used to prolong oil-change intervals and improve engine efficiency. Maleic anhydride is also used to make copolymers, pesticides, and other organic compounds, and in Diels-Alder syntheses.
Maleic anhydride is used in the formulation of resins. Exposure to maleic anhydride may occur from accidental releases to the environment or in workplaces where it is produced or used.Acute (short-term) inhalation exposure of humans to maleic anhydride has been observed to cause irritation of the respiratory tract and eye irritation.Chronic (long-term) exposure to maleic anhydride has been observed to cause chronic bronchitis, asthma-like attacks, and upper respiratory tract and eye irritation in workers.In some people, allergies have developed so that lower concentrations can no longer be tolerated.Kidney effects were observed in rats chronically exposed to maleic anhydride via gavage (experimentally placing the chemical in the stomach).
