Any other information on results incl. tables

For 3,4-DCA a short-term investigation with birds determining the acute lethal effect

after oral application is available. After 18 hours a LD50 of 237 mg/kg bw/day for Red-winged

Black birds were obtained. 3,4-DCA was usually dosed by gavage with solutions or suspensions

in propylene glycol (Schafer et al., 1983). This study cannot be used for the assessment.
