Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
LD50 was considered to be 4300 mg/kg bw when rabbits were treated with Geranyl nitrile by dermal application.
Executive summary:

In a acute dermal toxicity study, rabbits were treated with Geranyl nitrile in the concentration of 4300 mg/kg bw by dermal application. 50 % mortality observed in 4300 mg/kg bw treated rats. Therefore, LD50 was considered to be 4300 mg/kg bw when rabbits were treated with Geranyl nitrile by dermal application.
