Abstract : Acrolein is an aldehyde that was first isolated in 1843 from the dry distillation of fats and glycerol. It is now known that acrolein is ubiquitous in the environment. This report is part of a continuing series of brief reviews of environmental contaminants and their effects on living organisms with special emphasis on fishery and wildlife resources. It was prepared in response to requests for information on acrolein from environmental specialists of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
