Description of key information

Key study is available to assess the acute toxicity of the read-across substance (Phenethyl alcohol) via the oral route. Study was found to be

equilavent or similar to OECD 401.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Acute toxicity: via oral route

Endpoint conclusion
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Value:
1 609.3 mg/kg bw

Additional information

Based upon the results of the acute oral acute oral toxicity study in rats, the calculated acute oral LD50 for male and female treated with Phenethyl alcohol was determined to be 1609.3 mg/kg with confidence limits of 1399.6 to 1850.4 mg/kg. The calculated acute oral LD50 for males was determined to be 1692.6 mg/kg with 95% confidence limits of 1433.3 to 1998.9 mg/kg.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to GHS an oral LD50 of < 300 to ≤ 2 000 mg/kg, constitutes an acute toxicity hazard category of 4. H302 -Harmful if swallowed.
