CAS No.   This PRM applies to three chemicals; triethylene glycol monomethyl ether (TGME) (CAS No.112-35-6), triethylene glycol monoethyl ether (TGEE) (CAS No.112-50-5), and triethylene glycol monobutyl ether (TGBE) (CAS No. 143-22-6). In this summary, these three chemicals are referred to collectively as the "triethylene glycol ethers."

Announced Receipt of Test Data

Ames assay; CHO/HGPRT forward mutation assay; mouse bone marrow micronucleus test (55 FR 13956; April 13, 1990) and oral developmental toxicity studies in rabbits and pregnant rats (55 FR 17670; April 26, 1990). These studies were submitted pursuant to a consent order.

CMA submitted a 13-week dermal toxicity test in rats and a 90-day subchronic drinking water including a neurotoxicity study in rats required by the CO (55 FR 50055; December 4, 1990).

CMA submitted a developmental neurotoxicity evaluation of TGME pursuant to a test rule. The TGME was administered by gavage to time-mated CD rats on gestational day 6 through postnatal day 21 (57 FR 11614; April 6, 1992).
