Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A corrosive result was reported after 5 min treatment when diethyl ether boron trifluoride was tested under occlusive conditions BASF (1984). Four rabbits were treated with the undiluted test substance (shaved skin).

In another BASF report (1984), diethyl ether boron trifluoride showed skin irritation after 3 minutes treatment. Three animals were treated with the unchanged test substance (shaved skin).

As the product corrodes the skin, it can be expected to have a similar effect on the eyes, also. This assumption was confirmed (BASF, 1984).
