Description of key information

Fatty acids, C8-10, zinc salts:

Toxicity studies of fatty acids, C8-10, zinc salts are not available. Read-across to the assessment entities soluble zinc substances and fatty acids (C8-10) is applied since zinc cations and fatty acid anions (C8-10) determine its fate and toxicity in the environment. Please refer to the respective assessment entity for further details.

Fatty acids (C8-10):

Fatty acids as contained in plant and animal tissue are a natural component of soil, are rapidly degraded and non-bioaccumulative and are therefore assumed to be of low toxic potential towards terrestrial plants.


NOEC and EC10 values are available for 18 different species. The NOEC/EC10 values vary between 32 mg Zn/kgdw for Trifolium pratense and Vicia sativa to 5855 mg Zn/kg dw for Triticum aestivum.
