Nomination Summary for Fenchone (N98010)
Nomination Date: 02/18/1998
Rationale: The nomination of fenchone is based on widespread low-level consumer exposure, potential exposure of workers, scientific interest, and lack of toxicity data. Fenchone typifies a group of bicyclic terpenes and camphors that are widely distributed in nature. It is an ingredient in several seasonings and flavorants and is also found in the workplace. As a representative of a group of natural products, fenchone is likely to remain untested without the involvement of the NTP.
