Abstract : Chemical AI3-38350a produced mild primary irritation of the intact skin and of the skin surrounding an abrasion. Chemicals AI3-38191a, AI3-38195a, and AI3-38196a did not produce skin irritation. Chemical AI3-38350a produced mild injury to the cornea and, in addition, some injury to the conjunctiva. Chemical AI3-38191a produced mild injury to the cornea. Chemicals AI3-38195a and AI3-38196a were noninjurious to the eyes of rabbits. All chemicals tested were relatively nontoxic by ingestion, did not potentiate photo irritation, and did not produce sensitizing reactions. (Author)
