Nitrile exam gloves

Hello, I have a freshwater aquarium and I was thinking that using nitrile exam gloves to clean the tank. I was wandering if there are any chemicals in these and are safe to use in the tank?

Thank you for your attention in thisi matter,

Interesting question. Looking around the net there's really nothing on nitrile-butadiene safety and fish, or water exposure. I guess the only thing that pops up is that, like natural rubber, they can be broken down by oxidizers, like bleach. If you're just using them to keep your hands dry while scrubbing a full tank, and not using cleaning products, they'll probably be fine.
