Description of substance: Colorless gas with a disagreeable odor like hydrogen sulfide.
LEL: . . . Unknown
Original (SCP) IDLH: 40 ppm
Basis for original (SCP) IDLH: The chosen IDLH is based on the statement by AIHA  that exposure of dogs and cats to 40 to 45 ppm for 1 hour has proven dangerous [Webster 1946].
Shortterm exposure guidelines: None developed
ACUTE TOXICITY DATA:
Lethal concentration data:
Other animal data: It has been reported that exposure of dogs and cats to 40 to 45 ppm for 1 hour has proven dangerous [Webster 1946].
Human data: None relevant for use in determining the revised
|Revised IDLH: 5 ppm
Basis for revised IDLH: The revised IDLH for stibine is 5 ppm based on acute inhalation toxicity data in animals [Browning 1961].
