placement of the patient.

The above first aid instructions are mandated by the Commonwealth Department

of Health and Ageing via the National Drugs and Poisons Schedule. These

instructions are suitable for ingestion of spray solution and small amounts of

concentrate; however, if SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS of the concentrate have been

swallowed (more than about one teaspoon) AND if medical assistance is more

than 30 minutes away, the induction of vomiting should be CONSIDERED,

preferably based on MEDICAL ADVICE if a physician can be contacted by phone.

All care must be taken to prevent vomit from being inhaled. Do not give

anything by mouth to a semi-conscious or unconscious person.

Skin If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly

with water.

Wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and water.

If irritation persists, seek medical advice.

Eye If in eyes, hold eyelids open and wash with copious amounts of water for at

least 15 minutes.

Seek medical advice.

First Aid Facilities If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or the Poisons Information Centre

(Australia) on 13 11 26.

Advice to Doctor Treat symptomatically.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Toxicology

Information No harmful effects are expected if the precautions on the label and this MSDS

are followed.

Inhalation When applying the product as a spray avoid breathing in spray mist.

May cause irritation to mucous membranes.

Breathing vapour can result in headaches, dizziness and possible nausea.

Ingestion The concentrate is harmful if swallowed.

Amounts swallowed incidental to normal handling procedures and use are not

expected to cause injury.

Molinate is rapidly metabolysed and excreted, mainly in the urine.

Skin May irritate the skin.

Prolonged contact with the concentrate can cause defatting of the skin and may

result in dermatitis.

Eye The concentrate will cause irritation of the eyes.

Chronic Effects Evidence from animal studies indicate that repeated or prolonged exposure to

molinate can result in neuropathy.

Reproductive

Toxicity Evidence from animal studies suggests the potential for developmental toxicity

on repeated or prolonged exposure.

Carcinogenicity Molinate has been classified in the occupational environment as a Carcinogen

Category 3 substance. This means that the substance is not classifiable as to

carcinogenicity to humans.

Classified as hazardous

Acute Toxicity- OralLD50 (rat) 483 mg/kg for molinate

Acute Toxicity -

Dermal LD50 (rabbit) 4350 mg/kg for molinate

Acute Toxicity -

Inhalation LC50 (rat) (4hr) 1.39 mg/l for molinate (as aerosol)

Eye Irritation The product is an eye irritant.

Skin Irritation Mild skin irritant.

Other Information The Australian Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for molinate for a human is 0.002

mg/kg/day, set for the public for daily, lifetime exposure. This is based on

the NOEL of 0.2 mg/kg/day,the level determined to show no effects during long

term exposure for the most sensitive indicators and the most sensitive

species. (Ref: Comm. Dept. of Health and Ageing Office of Chemical Safety,

'ADI List', December 2008).

Other Toxicological information:

Laboratory testing in animals has shown that exposure to molinate,followed by

the ingestion of alcohol causes adverse effects, including a reduction in

blood pressure, rapid heart beat and flushing of the skin. Consumption of

alcohol during and after using this product should be avoided.

Short-term repeated exposure in rats to molinate (4-45 mg/kg bw/day) resulted

in decreased fertility in male rats.This effect was reversible upon cessation

of exposure.

Doses of 60-180 mg/kg bw/day of molinate were fed to rats and dogs for 90

days. Effects were noted in the kidneys, testes and ovaries. Molinate was

overall negative in a battery of genotoxicity assays.

In a two-year feeding study, male rats receiving 300ppm of molinate per day,

showed an increased incidence of kidney tumours. This effect was not seen in

female rats or in male or female mice at any dose level.

Laboratory studies using rats have shown decreased sperm production following

exposure to molinate. The relevance of these studies to humand is not known.

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION

Persistence /

Degradability Average field half life of molinate is 8 - 25 days.

Known Harmful

Effectsonthe

Environment Molinate products do not appear to pose any threat to fish or other aquatic

organisms other than in very high concentrations.

Other Precautions Do not spray on vegetation where honeybees are foraging.

Do not spray in high winds.

Do not contaminate dams, waterways or sewers with this product.

Environ.Protection Spray drift can cause damage, read the label for more information.

Marine pollutant.

Acute Toxicity - Fish Not toxic to fish.

The following is data for the active ingredient, molinate.

LC50 (96hr) for rainbow trout is 13 mg/l.

LC50 (96hr) for bluegill sunfish is 29 mg/l.
