Abstract:

A preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-36541-aGa was performed by means of laboratory studies using rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. The technical grade compound caused only mild eye and skin irritation but did not produce photochemical irritation in rabbits, did not sensitize guinea pigs and did not demonstrate an acute ingestion hazard. It is recommended that AI3-36541-aGa be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. It should, however, be used with caution around the eyes and mucosa. Author
