Description

Off-white solid; [HSDB]

Sources/Uses

Used as an antioxidant and stabilizer for polymers (ABS, polypropylene, polyacetal, rubber, latex, and adhesives); [HSDB]

Comments

Chronic high dose oral studies with rodents caused functional changes in the nervous system and liver and morphological changes to testes; [HSDB] A moderate eye irritant, based on animal studies; Although acute oral LD50 is more than 5,000 mg/kg, male reproductive effects were observed in sperm and histopathological changes to testes in test groups of 42.3 mg/kg and higher (NOAEL male reproductive toxicity = 12.2 mg/kg/day); [eChemPortal: SIDSUNEP] An eye irritant; [MSDSonline]
