In an acute oral toxicity study (similar to OECD Guideline No 401), 3 groups of 1, 3 and 1 mice/sex were given a single oral dose of nopyl acetate at 2, 5 and 10 mL/kg bw, respectively. Animals were then observed for mortality, clinical signs and bodyweights for 7 days and were all macroscopically necropsied after sacrifice.
Mortalities at 2, 5 and 10 mL/kg bw were 0, 100 and 100 %, respectively. Surviving animals gained weight during the 7 day observation period and presented a normal appearance at autopsy. Mice dosed at all three levels were hypothermic and showing signs of stress within 30 minutes after treatment. Female dosed 5 and 10 mL/kg bw were also somnolent and exhibiting laboured breathing. Within 1 hr after treatment all the male mice were somnolent and the females dosed at 5 and 10 mL/kg bw were comatose. Within 2 hr after treatment all mice dosed at 5 and 10 mL/kg bw were cyanosed and after 18 h all these animals were dead. Mice dosed at 2 mL/kg bw were still showing signs of stress 18 h after treatment, but recovered within 42 h. Autopsy of the animals that died revealed irritation of the small intestine and peritoneum; and the mesenteric lymph nodes of these animals also appeared enlarged and inflammed. Livers and kidneys of these animals were pale, and they had distended bladders. In this study, the combined oral LD50 of nopyl acetate was considered to be 2-5 mL/kg bw (equivalent to 1960-4900 mg/kg bw) in mice.
The oral LD50 of nopyl acetate could be considered as higher than 2000 mg/kg bw in mice therefore it is not classified for acute oral toxicity according to Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
