Abstract:

A hazard evaluation of candidate insect repellent AI3-35966 was performed by means of laboratory studies using rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. The technical grade compound caused mild skin irritation, but no eye irritation, no photochemical irritation in rabbits, no sensitization reactions in guinea pigs and did not demonstrate an acute ingestion hazard. It is recommended that AI3-35866, cis-3-hexenyl isovalerate be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. Author
