Oral:LD50 cut-off = 500 mg/kg bw nickel hydrogencitrateDermal:LD50 > 2000 mg/kg bw nickel hydrogencitrate
The oral acute toxicity study has been
performed according to OECD guideline 423. First, groups of 6 female
Sprague Dawley rats received a single oral dose of 2000 mg/kg bw nickel
hydrogencitrate. All animals died within 72 hours after dosing.
Mortalities were preceded by a decrease in spontaneous activity
associated with partial ptosis, piloerection and bradypnea as well as a
decrease in muscle tone and righting reflex. Furthermore, increased
lachrymation was observed. In a second step, 6 female rats of the same
strain were dosed with 300 mg/kg bw nickel hydrogencitrate. No animal
died. At this dose level, there were no effects related to treatment.
The LD50 cut-off was determined as 500 mg/kg bw nickel hydrogencitrate.
No reliable acute study public available.
For the dermal route, a study according to
OECD guideline 402 has been performed with nickel hydrogencitrate in 5
Sprague Dawley rats of each sex at a single dose of 2000 mg/kg bw. No
mortality occured. There were no treatment-related effects. Therefore,
the LD50 was determined as higher than 2000 mg/kg bw.
Nickel hydrogencitrate and Trinickel
dicitrate are comparable: Since citric acid is a multifunctional acid,
at different pH values various intermediate ions like citrate,
hydrogencitrate and dihydrogencitrate are formed.
Based on the available data, the substance Trinickel
dicitrate needs to be cassified:
EU: R22 Harmful if swallowed.
CLP: Category 4
There is conclusive data available which is
not sufficient for classification.
