Proposition 65: Listing of Dibenzanthracenes and N-Nitrosomethyl-n-alkylamines (December 2014)

California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is adding numerous chemicals within the Dibenzanthracene and N-nitrosomethyl-n-alkylamine chemical groups to the Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer. These Dibenzanthracenes and N-nitrosomethyl-n-alkylamines were tested by the Carcinogen Identification Committee (CIC), which serves as the “state’s qualified experts.”

Effective December 26, 2014, the following Dibenzanthracenes are listed under Proposition 65 as known to the state to cause cancer:

Chemical CAS No. Toxicological Endpoints Listing Mechanism
Dibenzanthracenes --- cancer State Qualified Experts
Dibenz[a,c]anthracene 215-58-7 cancer State Qualified Experts
Dibenz[a,j]anthracene 224-41-9 cancer State Qualified Experts
Evidence on the Carcinogenicity of Dibenzanthracenes


Effective December 26, 2014, the following N-nitrosomethyl-n-alkylamines with alkyl chain lengths of 3 to 12 and 14 carbons are listed under Proposition 65 as known to the state to cause cancer:
