Safety Information
4-NONYLPHENOL Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesviscous colourless liquid with a phenol-like smell
  • Uses4-nonylphenol is used in the process for the manufacture of 5-nonyl salicylaldoxime, which is used for the selective purification and concentration of copper ions.
  • Usesweevil pheromone, shows estrogenic activity
  • UsesPrincipal use as an intermediate in the production of nonionic ethoxylated surfactants; as an intermediate in the manufacture of phosphite antioxidants used for the plastics and rubber industries
  • DefinitionChEBI: A member of the class of phenols that is phenol which is para-substituted with a nonyl group.
  • Health HazardNonylphenol is a severe irritant of the eyes and skin.
  • CarcinogenicityNonylphenol has recently been shown to have estrogenic properties, triggering mitotic activity in rat endometrium and cell proliferation in estrogen-sensitive tumor cells.9 Potential toxicity to humans who may be exposed to nonylphenol through leaching of plastics has not been determined.
