Abstract:

A preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-36416 was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits and guinea pigs. The technical grade compound did not produce eye or skin irritation, or cause a photochemical irritation in rabbits, did not sensitize guinea pigs and did not demonstrate an acute ingestion hazard. It was recommended that AI3-36416 be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. Author
