Emergency Overview

Physical Description & Colour

: Light to dark brown liquid.

Odour:

Aromatic hydrocarbon odour.

Major Health Hazards:

The acute oral LD

of Diclofop-methyl for rats ranged between 563-693 mg/kg (in sesame

oil). The acute dermal LD

for female rats was greater than 2,000 mg/kg. The no effect level (NEL) for a 90-day

feeding to rats was 12.5 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg for a 15-month feeding to dogs. The acute percutaneous LD

for rats

was greater than 5,000 mg/kg. The acute inhalation toxicity for rats exposed to technical Diclofop-methyl was greater

than 3.83 mg/l/hour. Rats exposed to a formulated product containing Diclofop-methyl had an oral LD

value of

greater than 2,000 mg/kg. The acute dermal LD

for exposure to the same product was greater than 5,000 mg/kg.

The inhalation LC

in rats for a 36%EC formulation of Diclofop-methyl over a four-hour period was 8.3 mg/l air.

irritating to eyes and skin, harmful if swallowed, possible skin sensitiser, if aspirated, may cause lung damage.

Potential Health Effects

Persons sensitised to Diclofop methyl should avoid contact with this product.

Inhalation:

Short Term Exposure:

Available data indicates that this product is not harmful. However product may be mildly

irritating, although unlikely to cause anything more than mild transient discomfort.

Long Term Exposure:

No data for health effects associated with long term inhalation.

Skin Contact:

Short Term Exposure:

Classified as a potential sensitiser by skin contact. Exposure to a skin sensitiser, once

sensitisation has occurred, may manifest itself as skin rash or inflammation, and in some individuals this reaction can

be severe. In addition product is a skin irritant. Symptoms may include itchiness and reddening of contacted skin.

Other symptoms may also become evident, but all should disappear once exposure has ceased.

Long Term Exposure:

May cause defatting and dermatitis.

Eye Contact:

Short Term Exposure

: This product is an eye irritant. Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes and

watering which may become copious. Other symptoms may also become evident. If exposure is brief, symptoms

should disappear once exposure has ceased. However, lengthy exposure or delayed treatment may cause permanent

damage.

Long Term Exposure

: No data for health effects associated with long term eye exposure.

Ingestion:

Short Term Exposure

: Significant oral exposure is considered to be unlikely. Because of the low viscosity of this

product, it may directly enter the lungs if swallowed, or if subsequently vomited. Once in the lungs, it is very difficult to

remove and can cause severe injury or death. However, this product is an oral irritant. Symptoms may include burning

sensation and reddening of skin in mouth and throat. Other symptoms may also become evident, but all should

disappear once exposure has ceased.

Long Term Exposure

: No data for health effects associated with long term ingestion.

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The SWA TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day

for a 5 day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that may be equalled (but should not be exceeded) for no

longer than 15 minutes and should not be repeated more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures

at the STEL. The term "peak "is used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

SECTION 11 - TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicity:

Acute Toxicity: The acute oral LD

of Diclofop-methyl for rats ranged between 563-693 mg/kg (in

sesame oil). The acute dermal LD

for female rats was greater than 2,000 mg/kg. The no effect level (NEL) for a 90-

day feeding to rats was 12.5 mg/kg and 8 mg/kg for a 15-month feeding to dogs. The acute percutaneous LD

rats was greater than 5,000 mg/kg. The acute inhalation toxicity for rats exposed to technical Diclofop-methyl was

greater than 3.83 mg/l/hour. Rats exposed to a formulated product containing Diclofop-methyl had an oral LD

value

of greater than 2,000 mg/kg. The acute dermal LD

for exposure to the same product was greater than 5,000 mg/kg.

The inhalation LC

in rats for a 36%EC formulation of Diclofop-methyl over a four-hour period was 8.3 mg/l air.

Inhalation: a rate of 4,800 ml of a 5% solution in a 4 cubic meter container for four hours was studied. Deaths

occurred with rabbits, but not with rats, guinea pigs or cats at this high rate. The 4-hr LC

for rats was 8,274 mg/m3.

The acute dermal LD

for rabbits was reported to be 640 mg/kg. A Diclofop-methyl study on rabbits indicated no skin

irritation at 24, 48 and 72 hours. Eye irritation in rabbits was found to be zero at 3, 7, or 24 hours. Other studies have

reported eye irritation in rabbits as corneal opacity spots and conjunctival irritation in both rinsed and non-rinsed

groups. Reversibility was observed in all but one animal in each group at 7 days. A 10% solution produced corneal

opacity in some of the animals that was completely reversible in 72 hours. The acute dermal LD

for rabbits was

found to be 640 mg/kg.

Chronic Toxicity: In 2-year feeding trials the NEL for rats was 20 mg/kg diet. The 15 month NEL for dogs was 8

mg/kg diet. Repeated absorption of chlorinated diphenyl ethers has resulted in liver damage in animals. Reproductive

Effects The NEL in a three-generation study of technical Diclofop-methyl in rats was greater than 30 ppm.

Teratogenic Effects: In a rat teratology study, the teratogenic No-Observable-Effect-Level (NOEL) was 100 ppm, the

highest dose tested. A rabbit teratology study reported a teratogenic NOEL of 3 mg/kg/day, the highest dose tested,

and a NOEL for fetotoxicity of 3.0 mg/kg/day.

Mutagenic Effects: Ames assay testing revealed no mutagenic effects using four bacterial strains with and without

enzyme activation in dose ranges up to 5 milligrams. A micronucleus test in mice indicated no mutagenic effect in a

strain with known sensitivity. In a dominant lethal assay, the NOEL was greater than 100 mg/kg. No impairment in

fertility of the male mice and no difference in the number of live and dead implantations in the female animals were

noted.

Carcinogenic Effects: No information was available.

Organ Toxicity: No information was available.

Fate in Humans and Animals: Diclofop-methyl is metabolized in mammals via hydroxylation. Chlorophenoxy

compounds are absorbed across the gut wall, lung and skin. They are not significantly stored in fat and urinary

excretion is the principal route of elimination. Elimination as a conjugate is within 96 hours.

There is no data to hand indicating any particular target organs.

Diclofop-methyl is Classed by SWA as a potential sensitiser by skin contact.

SECTION 12 - ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment.

Effects on Birds: The acute oral LD

to bobwhite quail was 4,400 mg/kg; and greater than 10,000 mg/kg for

Japanese quail. The eight-day dietary LC

value for coturnix quail was greater than 20,000 ppm; 13,000 ppm for

bobwhite quail; and greater than 20,000 ppm for mallard ducks.

Effects on Aquatic Organisms: The 96-hour LC

for technical Diclofop-methyl in rainbow trout was 0.35 mg/l water.

The 96-hour LC

in rainbow trout for a formulated product was 1.38 ppm; and 2.60 ppm for carp. The 48-hour LC

the crustacean Daphnia for a formulated product was 4.03 ppm.

Effects on Other Animals (Nontarget species): The LD

for honeybees in a lab test of a formulated product

indicated it was nontoxic at the highest dose tested; 48 kg/ha.

ENVIRONMENTAL FATE

Breakdown of Chemical in Soil and Groundwater: Under aerobic conditions, Diclofop-methyl hydrolyses in a

matter of days in the soil to 2-[4-(2',4'-dichlorophenoxy)phenoxy] propanoic acid which in turn is degraded relatively

quickly with a half-life of 10 days in sandy soils and about 30 days in sandy clay soils. Small amounts of 4-(2,4

dichlorophenoxy)phenol are also produced. Field studies of application rates up to 3.4 kg active ingredient per hectare

showed very low finite residues in soil. At harvest, small finite residues were present in the 0-7.5 cm soil level and rare

small residues were present above the 15 cm level. These studies indicate that Diclofop-methyl does not leach

downward or move laterally, and dissipates quickly in soil.

Breakdown of Chemical in Surface Water: No information was available.

Breakdown of Chemical in Vegetation: Diclofop-methyl is absorbed via the leaves and in damp soil there is slight

absorption via the roots. The compound inhibits root growth.
