The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

No toxic effects to fish up to the limit of water solubility (< 0.006 mg/L).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Short-term toxicity offatty acids, C5-9 tetraesters with pentaerythritol (CAS 67762-53-2)to freshwater fish was investigated in a GLP study according to OECD 203 under static conditions usingCyprinus carpioas test organism (Migchielsen, 2012).. A nominal test concentration of 100 mg/L (prepared as WAF) was applied. Test substance monitoring measured a concentration of 4.8 mg/L. The final test solution was slightly hazy with a floating layer; however, this is considered negligible, because no mortality was observed in the treatment throughout the test period of 96 h. Hence, the 96 h-LL50 is determined to be > 100 mg/L (nominal) and > 4.8 mg/L (measured) and thus above the limit of water solubility (< 0.006 mg/L, purified water). As it can be seen in the data matrix of the category justification in section 13 and the overall summary, all reliable data in the category support the hazard assessment of each category member by showing a consistent pattern of results,i.e. no toxic effects to aquatic organisms were observed up to the limit of water solubility.
