Additional information

Bacterial gene mutation (BASF, 1998)

The test substance (2-aminoethyldiethylamine) was tested for mutagenicity with the strains TA 98, TA 100, TA 1535 and TA 1537 Salmonella typhimurium and Echeriachia coli WP2 uvrA (Ames Test). The mutagenicity studies were conducted in the absence and in the presence of a metabolizing system derived from rat liver homogenate. A dose range up to 5.000 µg/plate was used. The test substance did not show in these bacterial test systems either with or without exogenous metabolic activation at the dose levels investigated a dose dependent increase in the number of revertants in any of the bacterial strains. The positive controls showed the expected results.

Based on these results it can be stated that the test substance is not mutagenic in these bacterial test systems.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the results of the in vitro genetic toxicity study (Ames test), it is concluded that 2-aminoethyldiethylamine hat not to be classified according to CLP (EC) No 1272/2008.
