    Hi
    Are all microscopic toxic particles of the same size?
    The more small the particles are, more transdermal?

    I ask for the case of seats and shoes, which can accumulate humidity and sweat, turning them in 'receptacles' of all kind of microscopic particles.
    There are a number of toxic substances related to toluene that cross the skin barrier fairly well, like xylene and others. They are liquids, but (i'm speculating) once dried the containers/old furniture/poor-quality finishings/... could volatilize them in the form of microscopic dust.

    Not necessarily

    I was reading a treatise entitled Metals. Chemical Composition and Toxicity. It says lead particles of 5 microns per m3 of air, are enought to bioacummulate in the organs.
    But it didnt mention transdermal toxicity. Any reliable research exist about transdermal toxicants? Could you post any link about it, please?
    I didnt find any in the web... Am i the pioneer of this topic?

    I found almost nothing, after days of search:
