Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the acute dermal toxicity of amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) in male/female albino rabbit. The procedure was the modification of the techniques described in Appraisal of the Safety of Chemicals in Foods, Drugs and Cosmetics, compiled by the staff of the Division of Pharmacology, Food and Drug Administration.

2 g/kg bw of test material was applied (single application) to the abraded and intact skin of the test animals. The trunk of each animal was then encased in a sleeve of plasticized material to ensure contact of the test material for a 24 h period. Animals were observed immediately after dosing, and at 1, 6 and 24 h post-dosing. Following the 24 h exposure period, animals were observed for mortality, skin response and general behavior for 14 d.

No mortality was observed in this study. All animals appeared normal throughout the 24 h exposure period and the 14 d post-exposure observation period.

Under the conditions of the test, the dermal LD50 value was found to be > 2 g/kg bw.
