It is a byproduct of combustion of coal or any fraction of petroleum 
products.  It has a multi-ring  structure, and is a known human 
carcinogen. The following organizations have set exposure limits, both 
industrial and environmental:
    IARC
     MEK
    ACGIH (TLV/TWA)
    ATSDR
    US EPA
    CAL EPA    

EPA ranks this as the most potent member of the anthracenes, and 
therefore ranks it with a potency of 1.0.  All other potencies are 
normalized to this.
