CAS number: 84989-06-0
The fraction of tar acids, rich in 2,4- and 2,5-dimethylphenol, recovered by distillation of low-temperature coal tar crude tar acids.
p-Cresol was applied to the skin of 30 males. Hair colour
was observed weekly for the subsequent 6 months. Microscopic examinations of post-treatment hairs and skin
biopsies of areas of non-pigmented and normally pigmented
hair were made. Control groups of animals received acetone.
Topical application caused depigmentation of the hair and
pigmented epidermis, especially of the tail. Large amounts
of p-cresol were lethal and had a local caustic erosive effect.
The available data is not reliable for hazard assessment of Tar acids,
Xylenol fraction (CAS 84989-06-0). Further testing is, however, not
required, as there are reliable oral repeated dose toxicity data
available for the hazard assessment of Tar acids, Xylenol fraction (CAS
84989-06-0) and therefore, the requirements defined in Regulation (EC)
No 1907/2006, Annex IX, 8.6 are fulfilled.
