Nonanal was of low acute toxicity in rats treated orally and in rabbits treated dermally. There were no signs of toxicity in a very limited study in which rats were given repeated oral doses. It was a severe irritant to rabbit skin and one case of allergic contact dermatitis has been reported in a woman. Nonanal was mutagenic to hamster cells and caused chromosomal effects in rat cells, although it was inactive in other mammalian cell culture systems. It was non-mutagenic in Ames bacterial tests.
