Acute oral studies (rat, mouse, guinea pig, rabbit) indicate moderate-to medium toxicity (>3000-600mg/kg). Medium acute toxicity is indicated in inhalation studies (≥1.2-5.3mg/l). Acute dermal toxicity was moderate in rat and rabbit (>2000mg/kg). Intraperitoneal administration causes high acute toxicity.
