  • The product's manufacturer or marketer did not respond to our inquiries regarding the use of solvents such as hexane in their processing and make no statements or representations on their packaging or website about going to the expense of procuring organic or conventional non-hexane-extracted soy protein ingredients.

  • Commercial grades of hexane are used as solvents for glues, varnishes, and inks, cleaning agent (degreaser) in the printing industry, liquid in low temperature thermometers. (alfa.com)
  • Often used in solvents, benzene and n-hexane can reportedly cause cancer and nerve damage, if not handled properly. (i4u.com)
  • Hexane has considerable vapor pressure at room temperature: Like most alkanes, hexane characteristically exhibits low reactivity and are suitable solvents for reactive compounds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many of the cases of polyneuropathy amongst workers chronically exposed to vapors of petroleum benzine and similar solvents have been attributed to the n-hexane component of these mixtures. (wikipedia.org)
  • neurotoxic
  • Couri D, Milks M. "Toxicity and metabolism of the neurotoxic hexacarbons n-hexane, 2-hexanone, and 2,5-hexanedione" Annu. (wikipedia.org)
  • These results suggest that some components in petroleum benzine are likely to antagonize the neurotoxic effects of n-hexane to the peripheral nerves, possibly by inhibiting the oxidation of n-hexane to its more toxic metabolites 2-hexanone and 2,5-hexanedione. (wikipedia.org)
  • lithium
  • For example, diethylmercury in the Schorigin reaction or Shorygin reaction: (C2H5)2Hg + 2 Na → 2 C2H5Na + Hg The high solubility of lithium alkoxides in hexane is the basis of a useful synthetic route: LiCH2SiMe3 + NaO-t-Bu → LiOt-Bu + NaCH2SiMe3 For some acidic organic compounds, the corresponding organosodium compounds arise by deprotonation.

  • toluene
  • Namely, 1000 ppm n-hexane, 3000 ppm n-heptane and 1000 ppm toluene were reported to have the effect of depressing the body weight gain of rats. (wikipedia.org)
  • petroleum
  • These results suggest that other components found in petroleum benzine may have an additive, syngeristic or potentiative effects on the biological effects of n-hexane. (wikipedia.org)
  • products
  • In what appears to be a significant step by Apple to improve worker safety, the company has decided to stop using benzene and n-hexane - chemicals known to cause cancer and nerve damage - on its popular products. (i4u.com)
  • Production
  • Earlier this year, activist groups China Labor Watch and Green America launched a petition campaign urging Apple to banish benzene and n-hexane in its production process. (i4u.com)
  • product
  • The product contains soy protein ingredients that are nearly universally processed with hexane, such as soy protein isolate and soy protein concentrate. (cornucopia.org)
