- Humidity (%): 30-70%
- Air changes (per hr): approx. 10
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12
Route of administration:
oral: gavage
corn oil
Details on oral exposure:
- Concentration in vehicle: 40g/100ml
- Amount of vehicle (if gavage): 5 ml/kg
- Justification for choice of vehicle: good homogeneity in corn oil

DOSAGE PREPARATION (if unusual):The test item preparation was produced for each application group shortly before application by stirring with a high speed homogenizer (Ultra-Turrax) and a magnetic stirrer. Additionally the homogeneity of the test item preparation during application was ensured by stirring with a magnetic stirrer.

CLASS METHOD (if applicable)
- Rationale for the selection of the starting dose: low toxicity was expected
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
Application group 1: 3 animals
Application group 2: 3 animals
Control animals:
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations: several times on the day of administration and at least once during each workday thereafter
- Frequency of weighing: shortly before administration (day 0), weekly thereafter and on the last day of observation
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes
- Other examinations performed: clinical signs, body weight
Dose descriptor:

Additional information

In an acute oral toxicity study performed according to the Acute Toxic Class method (BASF Corporation, 2014), 2000 mg/kg bw of the test item Thane 003-6 (preparations in corn oil Ph. Eur.) were administered by gavage to two test groups of three fasted Wistar rats each (2000 mg/kg bw in 6 females). No mortality occurred, no clinical signs were observed. The mean body weight increased within the normal range throughout the study period. There were no macroscopic pathological findings at the end of the observation period.

The acute oral LD50 was calculated to be LD50, oral, rat > 2000 mg/kg bw.

Justification for selection of acute toxicity – oral endpoint
Guideline and GLP study

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, 1,8 -Naphthalenediol, 1,8 -dibenzoate (Thane 003 -6) does not need to be classified for acute toxicity according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP/GHS).
