Abstract:

Chemicals AI3-38862a, AI3-39048a, AI3-39049a, AI3-39050a, and AI3-39051a produced moderate to severe primary irritation of the intact skin and of the skin surrounding an abrasion and, in addition, produced necrosis andor eschars. Chemical AI3-38863a produced mild primary irritation of the intact skin and of the skin surrounding an abrasion. The 25 wv solution of chemical AI3-38863a applied during photoirritation testing produced moderate primary irritation of the intact skin, without ultraviolet irradiation. Chemical AI3-38863a produced moderate injury to the cornea and, in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva. All chemicals demonstrated low to slight toxicity upon ingestion.
