Common name: Acrylamide
CSD refcode: ARCLAM
Short description: Acrylamide is a toxin and possible carcinogen used in water treatment.
Keyword: carcinogen
Keyword: toxin
Layman's explanation: Acrylamide is produced from the hydration of acrylonitrile. It is used to produce water-soluble polymers for water treatment and oil recovery; and has other uses. During its production, use, and disposal, it is released to the environment, mainly to water. By inhalation, ingestion, or contact, acrylamide is toxic, severely affecting the nervous system, respiratory system, skin, and eyes. It causes cancer in animals and is a suspected human carcinogen. Although acrylamide is degraded readily in the environment, it is considered a pollutant of water because oxygen depletion may occur when breaking down large amounts (as with accidents). The EPA regulates the chemical.
