No data available
11.9 Germ cell mutagenicity
Although there are "not active " results from in vitro tests (PATTY (5th, 2001), (EHC 113 (1990)), the substance cannot be classified because there are no in vivo test results.

There is also no animal test result and there is also no data of evaluation organizations, such as IARC.
11.11 Reproductive toxicity
No data available
11.12 Specific target organ toxicity - Single exposure
Although a slight symptom in the cardiovascular system at 100000 - 200000ppm (ACGIH (2001),PATTY (5th, 2001)) was observed in animal studies, it was out of the Category due to the high given dose.
11.13 Specific target organ toxicity - Repeated exposure
In the case of human occupational exposure (PATTY (5th, 2001)) and the toxicity studies of an animal (PATTY and (5th, 2001), (EHC 113 (1990) and (ACGIH (2001)), since effects on organ had come out of neither of the results, it was carried out the out of Category.
11.14 Aspiration hazard
Gas (GHS definition)

12 Ecological information
