Abstract : A hazard evaluation of AI3-36558 was conducted using New Zealand White rabbits for skin and eye studies, Hartley guinea pigs for a skin sensitization study, and Sprague-Dawley, Wistar-derived rats for determination of oral toxicity. It was found that AI3-36558 is a potential sensitizing chemical. Technical grade compound produced moderate injury to the cornea and to the conjunctiva of the rabbit and may cause similar damage if it should accidentally enter the eye of man.
