Executive summary:

In an acute oral toxicity study, groups (10 males/dose) of Wistar rats were given a single oral dose of test substance at 4000, 5000, 6250 and 7800 mg/kg bw. Animals were then observed for mortality and clinical signs for 14 days and all survivors were sacrificed for macroscopic examination.

 

Rats experienced lethargy, diarrhea and urinary incontinence. Deaths occurred overnight following administration of test substance. 1/10, 4/10, 7/10 and 10/10 animals were died at 4000, 5000, 6250 and 7800 mg/kg bw, respectively. In this study, the oral LD50 of test substance was 5600 mg/kg bw with 95 % confidence limits of 5000-6200 mg/kg bw in male rats.

 

Under the experimental conditions of this study, the test substance is not classified according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP) and to GHS.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, the substance is not classified according to the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 as the LD50 is greater than 5000 mg/kg bw
