General description

N-Nitrosodiethylamine belongs to the nitrosamines category of nitrogenous disinfection byproduct. It is also generated in chlorine based water treatment plants.

Application

N-Nitrosodiethylamine has been used to induce hepatocarcinogenesis in rat and mice.

Packaging

10, 25 mL in glass bottle
Bulk Package

Biochem/physiol Actions

N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDMA) is carcinogenic in all animal species tested. The main target organs are the nasal cavity, trachea, lung, esophagus and liver. NDMA is acted upon by the cytochrome P450 system resulting in the formation of carcinogenic methyldiazonium ion. However microbes like Pseudomonas metabolize NDMA into N-nitromethylamine (NTMA) and formaldehyde.
