Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Fisher SW (1984) reported no evidence of irritation or mortality (21 days) in earthworms treated with acetonitrile by topical application. Acetonitrile was a solvent control used in this study. Doses of 1 -4 ul were applied topically to worms weighing 4 -5 g. This corresponds to doses in the range of 156 mg/kg to 780 mg/kg.
