Abstract Tetrahydronaphthalene causes green discolouration of the urine in humans along with liver and kidney damage and general ill health. It also leads to skin and mucous membrane irritation. Animal studies indicate a low acute toxicity; no mutagenic effects have been observed; no studies on carcinogenicity, reproduction toxicity or immunotoxicity are available.
