Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The inhalation hazard test (IHT; synonymous to IRT, inhalation hazard test) was performed in principle as described in OECD Guideline 403 and in accordance to Smyth et al., Am.Ind.Hyg.Ass.J. 23,95-107 (1962). The aim of the test was to demonstrate the toxicity of an atmosphere saturated with vapors of the volatile components of the test substance at a temperature chosen for vapor generation (i.e. 20 °C for the present test substance).
The animals were exposed to the test substance for 7 hours (flow-through, 200 liters/hour).
