Special Report No. 08-03: Determination of the Anthraquinone Paper/Paperboard Simulated Sweat Partition Coefficient for the Estimation of Potential Dermal Contact Exposure

In response to new requirements to assess wood pulp derived materials marketed in California that may contain anthraquinone, experiments were conducted to aid the determination of the potential of anthraquinone (if any) contained in such materials to result in dermal contact exposure. The model used to assess this potential exposure requires an anthraquinone sweat/paper (or paperboard) partition coefficient. The American Forest & Paper Association Chemical & Product Stewardship Group (C&PSG) requested that NCASI conduct studies to determine this partition coefficient.
