Category Plot for Iron Pentacarbonyl AEGLS

FIGURE 7-2 Category plot of animal toxicity data compared to AEGL values. Note that the above plot includes multiple exposure studies for which a single exposure was input into the plot (5.5 h/d for two days in rats (Gage 1970); 6h/d, 5d/wk for 28 days in rats (BASF 1995). No effect = No effect or mild discomfort. Discomfort = Notable transient discomfort/irritation consistent with AEGL-1 level effects. Disabling = Irreversible/long-lasting effects or an impaired ability to escape. Some lethality = Some, but not all, exposed animals died. Lethal = All exposed animals died.
