Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to isomer 2,4- dimethylpentane (CAS RN 108-08-7) and isomer 3,3- dimethylpentane (CAS RN 562-49-2). Heptane (also known as n-heptane), a hydrocarbon solvent, is typically isolated via fractional distillation from light naphtha petroleum streams. Heptane, in its various isomeric forms (including 2,4-dimethylpentane and 3,3-dimethylpentane), is a constituent of fuels and certain petroleum solvents. Furthermore, n-heptane is used as a standard in testing knock intensity of gasoline engines and is regulated by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) as an inert ingredient in non-food-use pesticides.
