Products containing as much as 95% of d‐limonene are used for, e.g., degreasing metal before industrial painting and for cleaning assemblies. Experimental studies on the sensitizing potential of limonene show diverging results. In a previous study, we found that the sensitizing potential of d‐limonene increased with prolonged air exposure. The aim of 1 his study was to make further chemical analyses, to identify compounds formed by air exposure of d‐limonende and to study their allergenic… Expand
