Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Executive summary:

The potential acute toxicity of tert-dodecane thiol, following a single oral administration (gavage) to rats was evaluated in a study conducted in compliance with OECD Guideline No. 423. Tert-dodecane thiol in corn oil was administered once by oral route (gavage) at the dose level of 2000 mg/kg bw to two groups of three fasted female Wistar rats under a dosage-volume of 10 mL/kg. After the first assay with 3 females, as no mortality was observed, the results were confirmed in other 3 females. Each animal was observed at least once a day for mortality and clinical signs for 15 days. Body weight was recorded on days 0 (prior to administration), 7 and 14. On completion of the observation period, the animals were sacrificed and then submitted for a macroscopic post-mortem examination. No unscheduled deaths occurred during the study. Hunched back up to Day 2, incoordination (score 1) up to Day 1 in 6/6 animals and red discharge around the nose in 3/6 animals on Day 1 were observed. The animals were symptom-free from Day 3. When compared to historical control data, no change in body weight gain was noted. No macroscopic finding was observed. The oral LD0 of tert-dodecane thiol was higher than 2000 mg/kg in rats.
