EC number: 265-191-7
CAS number: 64742-88-7
A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained from the distillation of crude oil or natural gasoline. It consists predominantly of saturated hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C9 through C12 and boiling in the range of approximately 140°C to 220°C (284°F to 428°F).

In a dermal sensitisation study using
thermocracked kerosine in mineral oil, male young adult Pig/Hartley
guinea pigs were tested using a modified Buehler technique.
During the challenge phase, a second
exposure of a 1:4 dilution of thermocracked kerosine to induction test
animals did not yield higher response grades, severity, or incidence
than those associated with the naive challenge control group exposed to
thermocracked kerosine. During the challenge phase, exposure of 0.2%
DNCB to induction positive control animals elicited significantly higher
response grades, severity indices, and incidence over the naive DNCB
challenge control group. The vehicle irritation control group was free
of dermal irritation during the challenge phase. Therefore, under the
conditions of this study, thermocracked kerosine is not considered a
delayed contact sensitiser and DNCB induced an appropriate positive
This study received a Klimisch score of 1
and is classified as reliable without restriction because it was
conducted according to EPA OTS 798.4100.
