Source?[edit]

Is there a better source around for this than Everything2? That's another site where anybody can insert anything, like this one. *Dan T.* 20:06, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Foul?[edit]

It's in the eye of the beholder, isn't it? A lot of insects exhibit tropic behavior to it - i.e., they fly or crawl towards a source of these compounds, which indeed are foul or repellent to mammals.

Are we building a mammal-centric encyclopedia? 66.215.51.164 (talk) 18:13, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes, Wikipedia is mammal-centric. More specifically, we expect only humans, and not insects, to read it. ChemNerd (talk) 19:25, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

In rats it had an acute oral toxicity of more than 2000 mg/kg body weight.

Toxicity[edit]

One of the following two figures is wrong:

"with no-observed-adverse-effect level of 2000 ppm (180 mg/kg body weight/day)." 

As 2000 ppm is toxic, I guess the no-observed-adverse-effect level is 180 mg/kg, which is 180 ppm. Can somebody who has specific knowledge or access to respective papers check this figure? See also the putrescine article, which has the same problem. Mregelsberger (talk) 08:20, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
