Description of key information

Skin Irritation:

4-methoxyphenylacetone was not irritating to human skin after 48 hours exposure.

Eye Irritation:

The ocular irritation potential of 4-methoxyphenylacetone was estimated using OECD QSAR toolbox v3.3 with logPow as the primary descriptor.

4-methoxyphenylacetone was estimated to be not irritating to the eyes of Vienna White rabbits.

Based on the estimated results, 4-methoxyphenylacetone can be considered to be not irritating to eyes and can be classified under the category “Not Classified” as per CLP regulation.

Additional information

Skin Irritation:

In different studies,4-methoxyphenylacetone has been investigated for potential for dermal irritation to a greater or lesser extent. The studies are based on in vivo experiments in rabbits along with human data for target chemical and its structurally similar read across substances,4-methoxybenzyl alcohol[CAS: 105-13-5] and 4 methoxy phenylacetic acid (MPAA)[CAS: 104 -01-8]. The predicted data using the OECD QSAR toolbox has also been compared with the experimental data.

Various studies for 4-methoxyphenylacetone were summarized in Food and Cosmetics Toxicology, Volume 17, Supplement, December 1979, Page 857; to assess the dermal irritation potential in humans and rabbits.

4-methoxyphenylacetone applied at full strength to intact or abraded rabbit skin underocclusion was irritating after 24 hours exposure. Also, when tested on human subjects at 4% in petrolatum in a 48-hr closed-patch test,4-methoxyphenylacetone produced no irritation.

 

Even though rabbit study indicates that 4-methoxyphenylacetone is irritating to rabbit skin but human data concludes that it is not irritating to human skin. Since, in the rabbit study skin was exposed to higher concentration of 4-methoxyphenylacetone than the normal use, there exists a possibility of 4-methoxyphenylacetone being of not irritating to rabbit skin at lower concentrations. So, 4-methoxyphenylacetone can be considered to be not irritating to skin.

In a prediction done by SSS (2018) using the OECD QSAR toolbox v3.3 with log kow as the primary descriptor, the dermal irritation potential was estimated for4-methoxyphenylacetone. 4 -methoxyphenylacetone was estimated to be not irritating to the skin of rabbits.

Skin irritation effects were also estimated by four different models i.e, Battery, Leadscope, SciQSAR and CASE Ultra used within Danish QSAR database for 4-methoxyphenylacetone. Based on estimation, No severe skin irritation effects were known when 4-methoxyphenylacetone was exposed to rabbit skin.

The experimental and estimated data are in agreement with each other, which substantiate the claim that 4-methoxyphenylacetone is indeed not irritating to skin.

The above results are further supported by the experimental study summarized in Food and Cosmetics Toxicology, Volume 12, Issues 7–8, December 1974, Page 825; for the structurally similar read across substance,4-methoxybenzyl alcohol[CAS: 105-13-5]. 4-methoxybenzyl alcoholwas tested 5% in petrolatum on human volunteers in a 48-hours closed patch test. The volunteers were observed for signs of irritation.4 -methoxybenzyl alcohol was not irritating to human skin after 48 hours exposure.

These results are ably supported by the experimental study summarized in National Technical Information Service, OTS0530656-1 (1991); for the structurally similar read across substance,4 methoxy phenylacetic acid (MPAA)[CAS: 104-01-8]. Six New Zealand White rabbits were treated with 0.5 gm of test substance moistened with water. The Area of exposure was 6 square cm of clipped skin and the wrap used was Gauze patch. The cover was removed after 4 hours of exposure and the skin was wiped free of excess test material with absorbant pad. The skin reactions in the rabbits were observed and evaluated according to Draize method after 1 hr of removal of cover and 1, 2,3 days after removal . The minimum mean dermal irritation score at any observation was 0.0 (Maximum possible score is 8.0). No animal showed any indication of dermal irritation.

Thus, it was considered that 4 methoxy phenylacetic acid (MPAA) was not irritating to skin.

Based on the available data for the target as well as read across substances and applying the weight of evidence approach,4-methoxyphenylacetone was not irritating to skin.Comparing the above annotations with the criteria of CLP regulation, test chemical can be classified under the category “Not Classified”.

Eye Irritation:

In different studies,4-methoxyphenylacetone has been investigated for potential for ocular irritation to a greater or lesser extent. The studies are based on in vivo experiments in rabbits along with human data for target chemical and its structurally similar read across substances,p-methoxybenzyl acetate [CAS: 104-21-2] and 4-(3-oxobutyl)phenyl acetate (Cue-Lure)[CAS: 3572-06 -3].The predicted data using the OECD QSAR toolbox has also been compared with the experimental data.

In a prediction done by SSS (2018) using the OECD QSAR toolbox v3.3 with log kow as the primary descriptor, the ocular irritation potential was estimated for4-methoxyphenylacetone. 4 -methoxyphenylacetone was estimated to be not irritating to the eyes of Vienna White rabbits.

This is supported by the experimental study summarized in Food and Chemical Toxicology, 50, (2012), S502–S506;for the structurally similar read across substance,p-methoxybenzyl acetate [CAS: 104-21-2].Undiluted 0.1 ml aliquot of p-anisyl acetate was instilled into the left eye of four female SPF albino rabbits, then gently closed for 1 s. The untreated right eye of each animal served as a control. Observations were made at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours. Slight to moderate conjunctive irritation (4/4) was observed 1 hour after application. All effects were reversible within 48 hours.

Since, the observed effects were fully reversible by the end of the observation period, p-methoxybenzyl acetate can be considered to be not irritating to rabbit eyes.

The above studies are also supported by the experimental study summarized in Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology, 31,421-429,1975; for the structurally similar substance, 4-(3 -oxobutyl)phenyl acetate (Cue-Lure)[CAS: 3572-06-3]. 0.1 ml of undiluted sample was instilled into the conjunctival sac of the right eye of each of six albino rabbits. The left eye of each animal served as the control. Grading for eye injury was made at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hr and at 7 days after treatment according to the grading and scoring system of Draize et al. (1944) in which a zero score indicates no irritation and the maximum score at any one scoring period is 110 (maximum irritation and damage to the cornea, iris, and conjunctiva).

Some effects were observed in rabbits till 24 hours which got cleared up by 7 days. The mean irritation index for 4-(3-oxobutyl)phenyl acetate[Cue-lure] after 7 days was 0.0.

Hence, 4-(3-oxobutyl)phenyl acetate[Cue-lure]  can be considered to be not irritating to rabbit eyes.

Based on the available data for the target as well as read across substances and applying the weight of evidence approach,4-methoxyphenylacetone was not irritating to eyes.Comparing the above annotations with the criteria of CLP regulation, test chemical can be classified under the category “Not Classified”.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, 4-methoxyphenylacetone is not likely to cause any irritation to eyes and skin.

Hence, 4-methoxyphenylacetone can be classified under the category “Not Classified” as per CLP regulation.
