Nomination Summary for Diethylamine (N97011)

Diethylamine

Rationale: Nomination of diethylamine is based on high production volume, ubiquitous natural occurrence in trace amounts, and lack of sufficient chronic study data. Diethylamine has been detected in fresh and processed foods. Exposure may also occur endogenously; some drugs are metabolized to diethylamine. Occupational exposure was listed as 28,361 persons (NIOSH, 1984) and occurs mostly among chemical industry workers, machinery operators or health service workers.
