n-Nitrosodiphenylamine is an industrial compound. It is an orange-brown or yellow solid that has been produced since 1945. n-Nitrosodiphenylamine is used to make rubber products such as tires or to make other chemicals.

In the early 1980s, most U.S. rubber manufacturers replaced it with more efficient chemicals. Today, only one manufacturer in the United States produces n-nitrosodiphenylamine.

We do not know if it occurs naturally in the environment. There is some evidence that microorganisms make it.

The general population and people in the workplace are probably not exposed to n-nitrosodiphenylamine. People living near hazardous waste sites may, however, be exposed to it by drinking contaminated water of by touching or breathing contaminated soil and dust. Limited animal studies suggest that n-nitrosodiphenylamine can damage the bladder and kidneys. It has been found in at least 172 of 1,300 National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
