IRIS Toxicological Review and Summary Documents for 2-Hexanone

On this page:


EPA will conduct an assessment of the noncancer health effects of 2-hexanone. The IRIS program will prepare an IRIS assessment for 2-hexanone. The IRIS assessment for 2-hexanone will consist of a Toxicological Review and an IRIS Summary. The Toxicological Review is a critical review of the physiochemical and toxicokinetic properties of the chemical and its toxicity in humans and experimental systems. The assessment will present reference values for noncancer effects of 2-hexanone (RfD and RfC). The assessment will be subject to internal peer consultation, Agency review, and external scientific peer review. The final products will constitute the Agency's consensus opinion on the toxicity of 2-hexanone.
