Description of key information

Acute toxicity: oral: key study: The oral LD 50 was greater than 2000 mg/kg bw for rats. Test method was according to OECD guideline 401.
Acute toxicity: inhalation: key study: The LC 50 was greater than 20 mg/L for rats. Test method was according to OECD guideline 403.
Acute toxicity: dermal: Key study: The LD 50 of sodium trichloroacetate was greater than 2000 mg/kg. Test method was similar to OECD guideline 402.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Acute toxicity: oral:

Key study: Test method was according to OECD guideline 401. The oral LD50 was greater than 2000 mg/kg bw for rats. This result is supported by further experimental data from the company.

Acute toxicity: inhalation:

Key study: Test method was according to OECD guideline 403. The LC50 was greater than 20 mg/L for rats. Further experimental data show LC50 greater than 4800 ppm for different animal species (rats, guinea pigs, rabbits and cats).

Acute toxicity: dermal:

Key study: Test method was similar to OECD guideline 402. The LD50 of sodium trichloroacetate was greater than 2000 mg/kg. This result is supported by further experimental data from the company.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on these results, the substance sodium trichloroacetate is not classified for acute toxicity.
