Test animals

Species:
rat
Strain:
Sprague-Dawley
Sex:
male
Details on test animals and environmental conditions:
Average temperature inside chamber: 78F
Average relative humidity inside chamber: 80%

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
inhalation: vapour
Type of inhalation exposure:
whole body
Vehicle:
other: air
Details on inhalation exposure:
The rats were placed in a stainless steel chamber of 35 litres capacity and exposed to a concentrated atmosphere of vapours produced by passing a stream of air through 130.5 grams of the compound contained in a 300 milliliter flask. The sample was maintained at a temperature of 100C by immersing flask in heated sand bath. Vapours from the flask passed into one litre bottle to remove droplets and then into the chamber. Air flow through tthe sample was 4.0 litres per minute as measured by a calibrated rotameter. This was sufficient to violently agitate the liquid. No supplementary air was introduced inasmuch as the above supply was ample for the animals oxygen requirements.
Analytical verification of test atmosphere concentrations:
not specified
Duration of exposure:
6 h
Concentrations:
0.4 mg/l
No. of animals per sex per dose:
6
Control animals:
not specified
Details on study design:
The animals were observed for behaviour during exposure and for ten days following exposure. The viscera of the animals were examined macroscopically.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
male
Dose descriptor:
LC50
Effect level:
> 700 mg/m³ air
Exp. duration:
6 h
Mortality:
There were no deaths during the exposure or the 10 days observation period.
Clinical signs:
other: Upon removal from the chambre the fur was roughened; respiration was normal and no other signs of toxic distress were noted.The ten day observation period was uneventful.
Body weight:
The weight gain was normal.
Gross pathology:
The viscera appeared normal by macroscopic examination.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: not specified
Conclusions:
Rat 6 hour LC50 was reported to be >700mg/m3 air. The study was equivalent to guideline. The result was read across from undecan-1-ol (CAS 112-42-5).
