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 of Chemistry and Physics (Lide 2008). No information on the test methods 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.
