Ammonium salt N-nitroso-N-phenylhydroxyamine (NPHA) derives cupferron which is made up of four electrons which are consumed in alkaline and six electrons in acidic media for its electro reduction. The entire process undergoes extensive protonation. Polarogram of cupferron can occur only at the starting stages of protonation and nevertheless the kinetic data reveals the data pertaining to reduction of some analogous substances or probable intermediates. On the basis of geographic segmentation, the global Cupferron market spans North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East & Africa.
Cupferron is a reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogenic and oral exposure to cupferron causes tumors at different tissue sites in mice and rats. Human consumption of cupferron causes blood-vessel cancer and also causes cancer of the skin of the ear.
Clinically, cupferron is an analytical reagent that combines with metal ions and is used to segregate and precipitate metals such as copper, iron, thorium and vanadium. It is used to separate tin from zinc and to separate copper and iron from other metals. In some analytical laboratories, cupferron is a reagent used for quantitative determination of vanadates and titanium.
Cupferron is a biologically active compound and known to display carcinogenic, genotoxic, mutagenic and DNA damaging effects. The key driving factors responsible for the growth of cupferron market includes growth in R&D and polymerization activities. Additionally, the growing need for safety products such as fire extinguisher, dry powder, foam, sand, carbon dioxide and water mist.
APAC regions such as China and Japan dominate the global cupferron market in terms of business. APAC market is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. North American market is anticipated to grow at a moderate CAGR for the forecast period owing to low R&D activities. Middle-East and African markets are anticipated to grow at a low CAGR during the forecast period.
