Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
not specified
Dose descriptor:
other: Inhalation hazard test
Exp. duration:
8 h
Remarks on result:
other: No mortality occurred and no clinical signs were observed when rats were exposed for 8 hours to a saturated atmosphere of test substance vapours.
Mortality:
No mortality was observed in rats exposed to a substantially saturated vapor for 8 hours.
Clinical signs:
other: There were no clinical signs observed during the exposure period or observation period.
Body weight:
Exposed animals gained 53 to 82 g during the observation period.

There were no gross pathologic effects noted at the end of the observation period.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
No hazard is anticipated from the infrequent inhalation of substantially saturated vapor generated at room temprature under handlimg conditions.
Executive summary:

A group of 6 rats were exposed to an essentially saturated atmosphere of n-propanol for 8 hours. No significant effects were noted during or following exposure to an essentially saturated atmosphere of n-pentanol.
