Abstract:

A preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-37029-a was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. The technical grade compound has the potential to cause mild injury to the cornea, and some damage to the conjunctiva. However, it did not demonstrate potential for causing skin or photochemical irritation or sensitize guinea pigs, or demonstrate an acute ingestion hazard. It was recommended that AI3-37029-a be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. Author
