Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
other: Not classified
Conclusions:
LD50 was considered to be >5000 mg/kg bw, when rabbits were treated with (2R,5S)-5-methyl-2-(propan-2-yl)cyclohexan-1-one (CAS no.: 89-80-5) by dermal application.
Executive summary:

The acute dermal toxicity study was conducted by using (2R,5S)-5-methyl-2-(propan-2-yl)cyclohexan-1-one (CAS no.: 89-80-5) in rabbits atthe concentration of 5000 mg/kg bw. No mortality was observed in treated rabbits at 5000 mg/kg bw.Therefore, LD50 was considered to be >5000 mg/kg bw, when rabbits were treated with (2R,5S)-5-methyl-2-(propan-2-yl)cyclohexan-1-one (CAS no.: 89-80-5) by dermal application.
