||2-Naphthylamine is a human carcinogen to which exposure is prohibited in Germany. Although this substance is no longer produced, it exists in certain other products as an impurity. Concentrations of 2-naphthylamine were determined in samples of a number of products including those formed by pyrolysis (coal tar products, chimney soot, cigarette smoke) and products based on mineral oil. Concentrations in the air of an old coking plant and a primary aluminium plant were also determined, as well as in the air breathed by chimney sweeps. For the latter, concentrations were below detection levels. During biological monitoring of workers exposed to an adhesive based on coal tar, no 2-naphthylamine was detectable in the urine.
