Acrylamide, a colorless and odorless crystalline powder with a melting point of 84.5 °C, is soluble in water, acetone, and ethanol. Acrylamide has a high mobility in soil and groundwater and is biodegradable.1 Long-term exposure to acrylamide may cause damage to the nervous system both in humans and in animals to a certain extent.2 Meanwhile, acrylamide is also regarded as a potentially genetic and reproductive toxin3 with mutagenic and carcinogenic properties in both in Vitro and in ViVo… CONTINUE READING
