Description of key information

A single oral dose of 2000 mg/kg bw was tolerated withouth mortalities, clinical signs, effects on weight gain and gross pathological findings. According to OECD guideline 423 the LD50 cut-off for the test item is 5000 mg/kg bw. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment
