The fraction of tar acids, rich in 2,4- and 2,5-dimethylphenol, recovered by distillation of low-temperature coal tar crude tar acids.
Several developmental toxicity studies are available for the source
substances o-, p-, and m-cresol in rats and rabbits. No adverse effects
were observed in rats and rabbits regarding developmental toxicity up to
the highest dose tested (for rats 450 mg/kg bw/day, for rabbits 100
mg/kg bw/day). Whilst no studies on toxicity to development have been
conducted with tar acid, xylenol fraction, the experimental data
available on cresols are considered to be suitable and meaningful to
predict toxicity to reproduction (fertility) of the target substance.
