Abstract : Preliminary hazard evaluations of AI3-20351 (10.9.80) was performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The technical grade chemical produced mild injury to the cornea of rabbits. It did not cause skin irritation or prove to be acutely toxic by ingestion. Chemical AI3-20351 (10.9.80) produced a moderate sensitization reaction in 6 out of 10 guinea pigs. Based on the skin sensitization, it is recommended that this chemical not be approved for further testing as a candidate. (Author)
