1,2,3-Benzotriazole

Benzotriazoles such as 1,2,3-Benzotriazole are petrochemical-derived ingredients which have many functions due to their versatility. In dishwasher detergents, these compounds are often added to prevent corrosion or rust which occurs from the addition of oxygen-based bleaches in the moist environmenti. 1,2,3-Benzotriazole can cause eye irritation, is harmful if swallowedii and has been classified by the Dutch Expert Committee on Occupational Standards as a suspected human carcinogeniii. Benzotriazoles have low biodegradabilityii and are shown to be toxic to aquatic organismsii, a cause for concern considering they are often not removed during wastewater treatment .
