Original title Contribution Ó l'Útude toxicologique de l'alcool n-heptylique primaire. [in French]
Bibliographic information Apr.-May 1974, Vol.35, No.4-5, p.501-509. 20 ref.
Abstract Study of the acute toxicity of primary n-heptyl alcohol by different routes, including its irritant effect on the eye and skin of rats and rabbits. The results are given in tabular form and compared with those of methanol and dodecanol, closely-related alcohols. Conclusions: acute toxicity of open-chain alcohols by the pulmonary route is relatively minor; primary n-heptyl alcohol occupies an intermediate place in the acute toxicity scale and the index of degree of irritation of the alcohols.
