Technical Report on Toxicology and Carcinogenesis Studies of Sodium Dichromate Dihydrate (CAS No. 7789-12-0) in F344/N Rats and B6C3F1 Mice (Drinking Water Studies)

The most stable forms are metallic chromium, trivalent chromium (chromium III), and hexavalent chromium (chromium VI). Chromium VI has been shown to cause cancer when inhaled in the air. Because compounds containing chromium VI occur as contaminants in drinking water, scientists studied the effects of sodium dichromate dihydrate (SDD) in drinking water on rats and mice to identify potential toxic or cancer-related hazards.
