Nitrosamines are a class of carcinogenic, mutagenic, and teratogenic compounds generally produced from the nitrosation of amine. This paper investigates the mechanism for the formation of nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) from the nitrosation of dimethylamine (DMA) by four common nitrosating agents (NO(2)(-), ONOO(-), N(2)O(3), and ONCl) in the absence and… CONTINUE READING
