Abstract Conclusions of these criteria documents, translation of reports finalized in June-Dec. 1992: no data are available on the acute or chronic effects of melamine in man; tests for irritating or sensitizing properties proved negative. Animal studies indicate that diisopropanolamine (1,1'-iminodi-2-propanol) is of low acute toxicity; tests on humans reveal that it does not induce allergic or photoallergic reactions. No data are available on the effects of 1,6-hexanediol in man; animal studies indicate a slight acute toxicity. Tributyl phosphate is strongly irritating to the skin and mucous membranes in man; exposure by inhalation leads to nausea and headache. The toxicological action of dibutyl phosphate is assumed to be comparable to that of tributyl phosphate.
