Abstract : Preliminary hazard evaluations of AI3-38100a, AI3-38101a, and AI3-38102a were performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. The technical grade chemicals did not cause skin- or photo-irritation. They produce mild injury to the cornea and, in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva. They did not prove to be skin sensitizers or to be acutely toxic by ingestion. It was recommended that the chemicals be approved for futher testing as candidate insect repellents. (Author)
