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
