Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The test item did not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures.
Executive summary:

OECD 420 (2017) - In an acute oral toxicity study, a group of fasted, 8-12 week old female Wistar rats were given a single oral dose of Reaction Mass of (4R)-4-isopropenyl-1-methylcyclohexene (limonene) and (4R)-4-(2-methoxypropan-2-yl)-1-methylcyclohexene (ether MT) at a single dose rate of 2000 mg/kg bw (limit test) and observed for 14 days.

In the absence of mortality during the observation period, the oral LD50 was estimated to be greater than 2000 mg/kg bw.

In addition, there were no treatment related clinical signs, necropsy findings or changes in body weight observed in any of the individuals.

Reaction Mass of (4R)-4-isopropenyl-1-methylcyclohexene (limonene) and (4R)-4-(2-methoxypropan-2-yl)-1-methylcyclohexene (ether MT) did not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixture.
