The most dangerous tar is a powerful nitroso chemical, one part per billion in food is a hazard: in tobacco smoke there are 5000 parts per billion.
Perhaps the most widespread is free-radical cure chemistry; other chemistries include resins, epoxidized rubber, maleimides, C nitroso compounds, among others.
Under experimental conditions, the nitro moiety has been shown to undergo reduction to yield reactive nitroso and hydroxylamine intermediates (97, 106, 115-119).
Nitrosylation of these Hb sulfhydryls is most readily achieved by transfer of the nitroso group from a nitrosothiol to the protein sulfhydryls.
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.
Epidemiological evidence for the role of nitroso compounds in human cancer.
However, other coagent benefits such as excellent scorch safety, fast cure rate, nitroso free, low Mooney viscosity, and straightforward formulation characteristics make them particularly easy to work with in the manufacturing process.
The substantial peak near six minutes was identified by GC/MS to be a large quantity of dimethylformamide (DMF), neither a nitroso nor nitro compound while the second peak in the chromatogram was never successfully identified.
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[5].
