A CAS # search at http://chemfinder.camsoft.com takes you to Acros Organics
(Fisher Chem website) which provides an MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)
for 1-Benzylpiperazine.

It is a corrosive and hazardous substance which may cause severe irritation
and burns on skin and eye contact and when inhaled can cause chemical burns
to the respiratory tract.

For reasons not apparent to me, there are no studies reported on chronic
exposure effects, mutagenicity, LD50, teratogenicity, carcinogenesis,
reproductive effects or neurotoxicity.  It has no RTECS #, which indicates
that it is not scheduled for study.  Sounds like a wide open area for
toxicology research to me.
