Abstract Recent and projected industrial applications have markedly increased the usage of the hydroxides and iodides of cesium and rubidium. However, the acute toxicologic properties of cesium and rubidium have been investigated only on a very limited scale. It was deemed desirable, therefore, to assess the acute toxicity of these compounds. The single dose oral LD50, primary skin irritation index, degree of eye irritation, and skin allergic sensitization potential procedures were used. For purposes of compound administration by the various routes, all test materials were dissolved or suspended in deionized and distilled water. The concentrations used for the eye and primary skin irritation studies were the same as those used in industry. The concentrations used for the skin sensitization studies represented levels for obtaining potential allergic reactions without causing skin irritation.
