A hazard evaluation of the candidate face net impregnant dl-dibutyl malate ENT-337 was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats and rabbits. The technical grade compound did not produce primary irritation when applied to the intact or abraded skin of rabbits. Mild injury to the cornea and slight chemosis, redness and discharge of the conjunctiva resulted from single application to the eyes of rabbits. Data indicated little toxic hazard from accidental ingestion. Acute aerosol and subchronic saturated vapor inhalation exposures of rats resulted experimentally in no deleterious effect.
