"TSCA Definition 2008: A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained as a raffinate from a sulfuric acid treating process. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C9 through C16 and boiling in the range of approximately 150.degree.C to 290.degree.C (302.degree.F to 554.degree.F)." [ChemIDplus] Kerosene/jet fuels (category members and supporting chemicals) demonstrated: no skin sensitization in guinea pigs; low acute oral and dermal toxicity; moderate acute inhalation toxicity; no evidence of male reproductive system toxicity, maternal toxicity, developmental toxicity, or teratogenicity; some evidence of mutagenicity and very limited, if any, evidence of carcinogenicity (one study produced increased frequency of dermal tumors only in the presence of chronic skin irritation); [Reference #1] A skin irritant; An aspiration hazard by ingestion (may cause lung injury); May cause CNS depression; [Penreco MSDS]
