Eye - Bupirimate mild irritant. N-butanol 0.005 mL in eye causes severe irritation.
Vapour inhalation - LC50 - > mg/L air (rat).
Chronic oral toxicity NOEL - ppm for two years.
Not mutagenic or teratogenic (i.e. does not cause cancer or reproductive problems). Repeated high doses of bupirimate cause slight embryotoxic effects with a NOEL of 100 mg/kg/day.
Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) -
Injury to auditory system from inhaling n-butanol has been reported
23. TOXICITY SYMPTOMS:
If swallowed - Nausea, dizziness, diarrhoea, central nervous system depression, nose and throat irritation. If uncoordinated vomit may enter lungs causing complications.
On skin - repeated and prolonged exposure may cause allergenic contact dermatitis. N-butanol can be absorbed through the skin giving symptoms similar to ingestion above.
Inhalation may lead to headache, dizziness, fatigue and possible nausea. High concentrations can produce central nervous system depression, loss of coordination, impaired judgement and eventually unconsciousness.
Repeated and long term exposure to bupirimate has resulted in kidney disorders in animal tests.
Repeated and long term exposure to n-butanol at concentrations above 200 ppm can give corneal inflammation, blurring of vision, watering of the eyes and photophobia.
24. FIRST AID:
If SWALLOWED - Rinse mouth with water. Give water to drink. Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical assistance.
If in EYES - Irrigate for 15 minutes with plenty of water. Seek immediate medical assistance.
If on SKIN - Rinse with plenty of water, remove contaminated clothing, wash with soap and water. If swelling blistering or irritation occurs seek medical assistance. Contain n-butanol which can be absorbed through the skin causing toxicity.
If INHALED - Remove patient to fresh air. Remove contaminated clothing. Keep at rest. If breathing laboured and patient turning blue (cyanotic) give oxygen. If breathing stops apply artificial respiration. If heart stops apply cardiac massage. Seek medical advice.
If patient has symptoms or is concerned contact a doctor immediately.
Advice to doctor - Treat symptomatically.
