Sigma Aldrich (a pretty reliable SDS source) has CS2 listed as a Category 2A eye irritant. This is not a primary reference, but it certainly is "good enough" for the practicing safety professional.


Toxnet from the National Library of Medicine has it as an eye irritant:**At_Symbol_Here**term+**At_Symbol_Here**DOCNO+52


Hope that helps,

Curious if any one has experience  or references concerning eye irritation from low level exposure to gaseous carbon disulfide; CS2.  California state OSHA is looking into this matter as part of a proposal for a revised PEL for hydrogen sulfide- and CS2 confounds some of the literature data for H2S.
