Ronnel

May 1994
Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health Concentrations (IDLH)

CAS number: 299–84–3

NIOSH REL: 10 mg/m3 TWA

Current OSHA PEL: 15 mg/m3 TWA

1989 OSHA PEL: 10 mg/m3 TWA

1993-1994 ACGIH TLV: 10 mg/m3 TWA

Description of substance: White to light-tan, crystalline solid.

LEL:. . Noncombustible Solid

Original (SCP) IDLH: 5,000 mg/m3

Basis for original (SCP) IDLH: No useful data on acute inhalation toxicity are available on which to base the IDLH for ronnel. The chosen IDLH, therefore, has been estimated from the statement by ACGIH [1971] that the dog oral LD50 is greater than 500 mg/kg.

Short-term exposure guidelines: None developed

Human data: None relevant for use in determining the revised IDLH.

Revised IDLH: 300 mg/m3

Basis for revised IDLH: No inhalation toxicity data are available on which to base an IDLH for ronnel. Therefore, the revised IDLH for ronnel is 300 mg/m3 based on acute oral toxicity in animals [AAPCO 1966; Klimmer 1971]. This may be a conservative value due to the lack of relevant acute toxicity data for workers.
