Abstract : Preliminary hazard evaluation of AI3-38017 was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The technical grade chemical caused mild injury to the cornea, and in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva of rabbits. AI3-38017 did not cause skin or photo-irritation. It did not prove to be a skin sensitizer or to be acutely toxic by ingestion. It was recommended that AI3-38017 be approved for further testing as a candidate insect repellent. (Author)
