Abstract : Hexanoic acid monoester with 1,3-hydroxy-2-propanene (ENT-70156), which is a candidate repellent, was evaluated on New Zealand White rabbits for its potential to cause skin and eye irritation. The data obtained serve as a basis for making a recommendation concerning their potential use on humans. This recommendation is intended only for guidance in further entomological testing of this compound. (Author)
