Executive summary:

A 25% W/V suspension of the compound in tap water was administered as a single dose by gavage to rats which had been, fasted for 18 hours,at a dose rate of 20 mL/kg (equivalent to 5 g/kg of compound). No guideline was reported and no GLP was followed.

After administration of the compound, the animals were observed for 14 days. Deaths and clinical symptoms were recorded. At the end of the observation period« surviving animals were killed by exsanguination under ether anaesthesia and an autopsy performed.

The acute oral median lethal dose (LD50 ) in rats was stated greater than 5 g/kg body weight.
