Description
 
Anthraquinone is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of dyes & pigments, an additive in the kraft pulping process in the paper industry, a catalyst in the isomerization of vegetable oils, an accelerator in nickel electroplating, & as a bird repellent. The Nat. Toxicology Program (NTP) studied anthraquinone to determine if it caused cancer in rats or mice. They conclude that anthraquinone caused cancer of the kidney & urinary bladder in male & female rats & of the liver in female rates. The occurrence of some liver tumors in male rats may have been related to anthraquinone exposure. The NTP concludes that anthraquinone caused liver cancer in male & female mice, & thyroid gland tumors in mice may have been related to anthraquinone. Illus.
