Title Allergic contact dermatitis from 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan
Bibliographic information Aug. 1991, Vol.25, No.2, p.121-124. Illus. 14 ref.
Abstract A 30 year-old pharmacist suffered from acute allergic contact dermatitis due to 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan (NBD-C1). Contact allergy towards this reagent and 2 of its reaction products was proven by patch tests. As NBD-C1 has not been reported as an allergen before, the characteristics of this chemical and its use as an analytical reagent are briefly surveyed. Similarities to dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) are pointed out.
