Carbon disulphide

CAS Number
75-15-0
Name
Carbon disulphide
SIN Groups
Others
Reason for inclusion on the SIN List
This substance has endocrine disrupting properties. Human workers exposed to the chemical have shown dysfunctional sex behaviour, lowered sperm quality and alterations in testosterone levels. Animal studies show similar results including increased malformations in offspring and alterations in levels of dopamine and noradrenaline in the adrenal gland.
