Vinylchloride (highly toxic, flammable, and carcinogenic organochloride, important monomer) and its precursor, 1,2-dichloroethane, as well as naphthalene, chloroethane, and 1,4-dichlorobenzene appearing in source A, suggest local manufacturing of polymer materials, including the polyvinyl chloride (PVC), specialty polymers such as synthetic textile fibers, dyes, and possibly organo-aluminum compounds [1,44].

Because it is highly flammable, toxic and carcinogenic (IARC, 2002), naphthalene was replaced by 1,4-dichlorobenzene in mothball production; even then, mothballs should never be stored in places accessible to children or pets.
