Nomination Summary for 2-Methoxy-4-nitroaniline (N20613)
Nominated Substances: 2-Methoxy-4-nitroaniline
Nomination Date: 04/26/2006
Rationale: It is used in dyeing textiles, as a dye in the printing industry, and as an intermediate in the synthesis of Azo dyes in tattoo inks, emulsion paints and toy enamels. Given the concerns about other anisidines, findings that this agent is mutagenic when metabolically activated raises concerns about the carcinogenic potential of this compound.
