- Diphenylamine. Diphenylamine [CAS No. 122-30-4] is a derivative of aniline used primarily for its antioxidant properties. In agriculture, diphenylamine is applied as a fungicide to apples and pears post-harvest to control the appearance of brown spots after the fruit is removed from cold storage. In industrial processes, diphenylamine is used as an antioxidant in lubricants and rubber products, a stabilizer of nitrocellulose explosives and plastics, and in the manufacture of certain azo dyes.
- Indoor natural gas combustion. Natural gas is burned indoors in cooking appliances, furnaces, and water heaters. The combustion of natural gas releases nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and other pollutants that, when inadequately ventilated, indoor occupants might inhale. The potential adverse health effects of indoor natural gas combustion along with its contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions has led a number of local and state governments in the United States to ban new construction that relies on natural gas for cooking, heating, and cooling or to ban the sale of new natural gas appliances entirely.
