Description of key information

The acute toxicity of hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene, as measured by mortality to northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) was evaluated as a single oral dose. Under the conditions of this study, hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene did not produce acute lethal toxicity to Colinus virginianus at 2250 mg/kg, the highest dosage tested. The No Observed Effect Level was 486 mg/kg, based on the loss of body weight among females at the 810 mg/kg level.
The acute toxicity of hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene, as measured by mortality to northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) was evaluated in the diet. Under the conditions of this study, hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene did not produce acute lethal toxicity to Colinus virginianus at 6500 ppm, the highest dosage tested. The No Observed Effect Level was 842 ppm, based on signs of toxicity noted at the 1404 ppm level.

Additional information

The acute toxicity of hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene, as measured by mortality to northern bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) was evaluated both as a single oral dose and in the diet. Under the conditions of these studies, hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene did not produce acute lethal toxicity to Colinus virginianus at 2250 mg/kg (oral) or 6500 ppm (diet). The No Observed Effect Levels were 486 mg/kg, and 842 ppm, respectively.
