Abstract:

The compound AI3-35765 is comparatively non-toxic by ingestion and by dermal absorption. It has no potential for causing dermal sensitization and does not exhibit mutagenic activity in cell culture. No hazard exists from short-term inhalation of its saturated vapors. The technical grade may cause moderate, but reversible, injury to the eye. Recommend conducting further entomological and toxicological studies with AI3-35765 to determine if candidate compound meets the requirements for an effective and safe full-spectra topical insect repellent.
