A preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-36028 was performed by means of laboratory animals studies using Sprague-Dawley rats, New Zealand White rabbits, and Hartley guinea pigs. The technical grade compound produced some corneal opacity and mild conjunctival eye irritation, but no skin irritation or photochemical irritation in rabbits no sensitization reactions in guinea pigs and did not demonstrate an acute ingestion hazard in rats. It is recommended that AI3-36028, be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. Author
