Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
inhalation: vapour
Type of inhalation exposure:
whole body
Details on inhalation exposure:
A stream of clean, dry air (-40 deg dewpoint) was passed through the undiluted test material and into the exposure chamber.
Duration of exposure:
6 h
0.13 mg/l air
No. of animals per sex per dose:
Test groups:
5 animals/species/sex/dose. A total of 30 animals were used, 10 rats, 10 mice, 10 guinea pigs, 5 of each sex.

Control Groups:
A total of 15 animals were used, 5 rats, 5 mice, 5 guinea pigs. For each species, 3 were males and 2 were females.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Dose descriptor:
Effect level:
> 0.13 mg/L air
Exp. duration:
6 h
No animals died during the study.
Body weight:
The average 2 week body weight gains were within the normal limits except for 1 male guinea pig that lost 175 g. The remaining 4 guinea pigs weights were averaged.
Gross pathology:
Necropsy, performed on all animals at the end of the observation period, revealed no gross pathologic alterations.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
practically nontoxic
Migrated information
The test substance is expected to have a low order of acute toxicity by the inhalation route, due to its very low vapor pressure and the results obtained.
Executive summary:

A 6-hour exposure inhalation study was conducted in rats, mice and Guinea pigs (5 males and 5 females) at 0.13 mg/l (nominal concentration). DIDP is indicated to be administered as a vapour, but regarding the test conditions the substance was probably administered as an aerosol. No death occurred, no adverse reactions were noticed following the 14-day observation period, no gross tissue changes attributable to effects of the test material were observed in any of the animals examined.
