Methanol

CAS RN: 67-56-1

Skin / Eye / Resp. Irritants

Irritates the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract.
Methanol is irritating to the eye and causes conjunctivitis, chemosis, iritis, and corneal opacity. Methanol was reported to be a mild eye irritant. However, in another study, undiluted methanol caused moderate corneal opacity in three of six rabbits and conjunctival redness in all six rabbits. A 50% aqueous methanol solution caused minimal to no effects, and a 25% aqueous solution caused no effects.
