Petroleum additive alkaryl sulfonates are used as additives in petroleum base stocks in the formulation of lubricating oils, industrial oils, hydraulic fluids, gear oils, and metal working oils; They function as high temperature detergents to reduce deposits and as rust inhibitors; [EPA ChAMP: Initial Risk-Based Prioritization]
Petroleum additive alkaryl sulfonates: Category members demonstrate low acute oral toxicity; Inflammation, hemorrhage, and ulceration in oral repeated-dose studies of rats (no treatment related effects observed in males); Changes in clinical chemistry, hematology, organ weights, and histopathology in repeated-dose dermal studies; Histopathological changes of the lungs in repeated-dose inhalation studies; No evidence of reproductive or developmental toxicity; [EPA ChAMP: Screening Level Hazard Characterization] See "4-Decylbenzenesulfonic acid."
