Description of key information

In vivo and in vitro data are available on dermal absorption of ethanolamine, a minor constituent of the substance, and which the major constituent (carbonic acid, compound with 2-aminoethanol (1:2)) is expected to degrade to under certain conditions. When applied, in ethanol, to human grafted skin and mouse skin approximately 34% of applied radioactivity was recovered in organs/tissues and urine/faeces, and a further 18% was oxidised to [14C]-CO2, indicating dermal absorption over 24h of ca. 52%. A further 18%  remained on/in the skin grafts. The registered substance is expected to show a similar absorption rate. On consideration of structure, water solubility, etc. it is expected that the absorption via oral and inhalation exposures will be relatively extensive.
