||Chrysanthemic acid, ethyl chrysanthemate and chrysanthemoyl chloride - intermediates in the industial synthesis of the new insecticide neopyamine - were studied in animal experiments. The compouds are of moderate toxicity on intragastric administration, are only slightly absorbed by the skin, produce moderate irritation and do not provoke sensitisation. Of the 3, chrysanthemoyl chloride was the most toxic (LD50 = 160mg/kg, mouse) but was not embryotoxic or teratogenic. Maximum allowable concentrations of 10mg/m3 for chrysanthemic acid and ethyl chrysanthemate and 2mg/m3 for chrysanthemoyl chloride are proposed.
