Sulfolane is a widely used industrial solvent that is often used for gas treatment, in the manufacture of polymers and electronics, and may be found in pharmaceuticals as a residual solvent. The lowest, most conservative, RfD of 0.01 mg kg−1 per day was based on reduced white blood cell counts in female rats. This RfD was used to develop a tap water screening level that is protective of ingestion, viz. 365 µg l−1.
