Nomination Summary for Pentaethylenehexamine (N20615)
Nominated Substances: Pentaethylenehexamine
Nomination Date: 04/26/2006
Rationale: This chemical has been described as irritating, sensitizing, and corrosive in short-term tests in animals. However there is no information on the subchronic or chronic effects of exposure in humans or animals. Because Pentaethylenehexamine may produce long-term effects in aquatic ecosystems, its release in waste streams is also of concern.
