Triphenyl phosphate

CAS Number
115-86-6
Name
Triphenyl phosphate
SIN Groups
Organophosphors
Reason for inclusion on the SIN List
This substance has endocrine disruting properties. Exposure through dust in humans has been associated with decreased sperm concentrations. Studies in fish show altered levels of estradiol and testosterone, increased levels of vitellogenin and impaired reproduction.
