Nomination Date: 09/30/1997
Rationale: The nomination of 2-, 3-, and 4-nitrobenzaldehydes is based on: 1) their potential for occupational exposures through manufacture and wide use as organic chemical and pharmaceutical intermediates; 2) their estimated occupational exposure; 3) their potential for environmental exposure; 4) their suspicion of carcinogenicity based on nitro-substituted aromatic structure, positive mutagenicity data, and evidence of carcinogenicity associated with structurally related compounds; and 5) lack of chronic toxicity data.
