Duration of exposure:
1 h
A total of 91.37 grams of the powders was disseminated during the 1 hour exposure period. The rate of powder dissemination was calculated to be 1.52 grams per minute. The rate of chamber airflow was 7.5 liters per minute and the chamber dust concentration was calculated to be 203.0 mg/l. The chamber atmosphere was extremely dusty.

Effect level:
> 203 mg/L air
Based on:
other: Mortality
Exp. duration:
1 h
Clinical signs:
other: The immediate response of the rats to the experimental atmosphere was an increase of activity in preening. After several minutes of exposure this activity decreased. After 30 minutes of exposure six rats exhibited salivation. By the end of the exposure
Body weight:
A slight body weight loss was observed in 6 rats for 1 day post-exposure.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
relatively harmless
Migrated informationCriteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Inhalation exposure of 10 rats for 1 hour to a dust atmosphere of Chlorendic Anhydride at a metered concentration of 203.0 mg / l resulted in salivation during the exposure. A slight body weight loss was observed in 6 rats for 1 day post-exposure.
