Additional information

The results are taken from the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Cards (WHO, 1999). No information on the primary source of these data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.

This is supported by the CRC Handbook (Lide 1995). No information on the primary source of this data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from a reliable peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.

This is supported by the Merck Index (Budavari 1996). No information on the test methods used is available in the publication. However, this information is taken from a reliable peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.
