Perhaps the most widespread is free-radical cure chemistry; other chemistries include resins, epoxidized rubber, maleimides, C nitroso compounds
, among others.
The exposure of such populations to nitroso-compound precursors through vegetables, marine foods, and drinking water may be neutralised by the relatively high consumption of turmeric, which reduces the formation of mutagenic/carcinogenic nitroso compounds
(Nagabhushan et al.
Scientists found 90% of the 300 nitroso compounds
tested produce cancers in animals.
Epidemiological evidence for the role of nitroso compounds
in human cancer.
Though part of the NO formed in vivo may react with thiol groups in low-molecular-mass compounds, this method does not detect these low-molecularmass nitroso compounds
, as NO must be in the gas state to react with the [0.
Many compounds, among them nitroso compounds
, mercaptans and their zinc salts, thiocarboxylic acids and their salts, disulphides, sulphenamides, hydrazines, peroxides and metal complexes, are known to have depolymerizing effects.
