Additional information

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – oral endpoint
Key study

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – dermal endpoint
Key study

Justification for classification or non-classification

The oral and dermal studies return LD50's of 5.0 and 2.0 g / kg bw and the inhalation study is waived on grounds of low vapour pressure and low exposure. Therefore, the substance is not classified for acute toxicity.
