Phillips Petroleum Co. (1980) reported a skin corrosivity and primary skin irritation test in rabbits. The unchanged test substance was applied under occlusive conditions for 4 hours. No mortalities and no corrosion were found. One rabbit exhibited lacrimation on day 2. Conclusion of the authors: irritating.
BASF (1964) found corrosive properties for rabbits when tested undiluted 2-mercaptoethanol for 20 hours under occlusive conditions. Since testing does not fulfill today's standard, this study cannot be used for classification.
Classification proposal concerning skin irritation: Xi; R38. under DSD. Category 2 (H315) under GHS/CLP.
Phillips Petroleum Co. (1980) found corrosive properties in a Draize test, when tested the undiluted test substance for 24 hours using rabbits. In this study, the test substance was not washed off.
