Description

Yellow powder; [Alfa Aesar MSDS]

Sources/Uses

Nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitroPAHs) are primarily produced from the incomplete combustion of organic matter; Occupational exposure has been documented in workplaces where diesel engines are used (i.e., underground mines); [Reference #1]

Comments

Complex mixtures of nitroPAHs have been shown to be potent mutagens; NitroPAHs have demonstrated some evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals; [Reference #1] An irritant; Risk of irreversible adverse health effects; A suspected teratogen; [Alfa Aesar MSDS] See "1-Nitropyrene"
