Abstract Conclusions of this criteria document which reflects the state of knowledge of November 2005: boron trifluoride diethyl ether is an irritant to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. In rats, the 4h LC50 is more than 1000mg/m3. Animal studies at high concentrations show adverse effects on the respiratory tract, kidneys, bone and liver. In mutagenicity tests, the product is non-mutagenic up to the toxic range. No data are available for an evaluation of the sensitization potential, genotoxicity, carcinogenicity and reproductive toxicity.
