Abstract : Preliminary hazard evaluations of AI3-38266, 38270a, 38272a, 38293a, 38296a, and 38193 were performed by means of laboratory animal studies using rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. Chemicals AI3-38266, 38270a, 38272a, 38293a, and 38299a caused mild skin irritation while AI3-38193 caused no skin irritation. Chemicals 38270a, 38272a, 38299a and 38193 produced mild corneal injury and in addition, AI3-38299a and 38193 produced injury to the conjunctiva of rabbits. Washing of the eyes reduced the severity of the injuries. Chemicals AI3-38266, 38293a and 38296a were noninjurious to the eyes.
