Tire Anti-Degradants (6PPD) Focus Sheet!

ITRC is proud to announce a brand new Focus Sheet on 6PPD and 6PPD-quinone! 

6PPD-quinone, a transformation product of 6PPD, is an emerging contaminant of concern due to its exceedingly high aquatic toxicity and nearly ubiquitous presence in environmental media. In the short time since 6PPD-quinone (6PPD-q) was isolated and characterized, scientists have been working to understand its prevalence and behaviors in the environment. The focus sheet below provides environmental officials with a brief overview of the current understanding of 6PPD-q sources, exposure, fate, transport, toxicity, and mitigation strategies.


Stay tuned for more from ITRC's 6PPD Team in the coming year! If you're interested in participating in this active ITRC team, visit their Active Team Page to register or learn more!
