The present review paper summarizes the data available in the literature concerning dinitrophenolic compounds and evaluates male reproductive toxicity in experimental animals. Gavage and feeding doses of 2-sec-butyl-4,6-dinitrophenol (dinoseb; CAS No. 88-85-7) manifested testicular toxicity, and 4,6-dinitro-o-cresol (DNOC; CAS No. 534-52-1) showed similar but weaker testicular toxicity in laboratory animals. Consecutive doses of dinoseb and DNOC by gavage seemed to induce spermatotoxicity by… CONTINUE READING
