Abstract On intragastric administration of the title compound (SATCHPA), the LD50 for rats was 4000mg/kg, for mice 1350mg/kg (hazard class 3). It shows slight cumulative effects (accumulation coefficient >5), not produce irritant or resorptive effects and is not an allergen. Concentrations of 107.5, 24.2 and 3.5mg/m3 were studied in chronic experiments: 24.2mg/m3 was close to the threshold limit and 3.5mg/m3 was inactive. Recommended MAC of SATCHPA aerosol in the workplace air: 5mg/m3. SATCHPA is an intermediate in the manufacture of the herbicide picloram.
