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

Additional information

Several studies with terrestrial organisms are available with GTL Base Oil Distillates. A short-term and a long-term toxicity study are available with the earthworm Eisenia foetida (Priestly, 2010b and Schmidt 2011). The studies reported respectively a 14 day LC50value of >1000 mg/kg dw and a 4 week NOEC value of ≥1000 mg/kg dw. A nitrogen transformation test resulted in an EC50(28-d) value of >1000 mg/kg based on nitrate formation rate (Clarke, 2010).

Additionally, in a plant seedling emergence and growth test five plant species, three dicotyledonous species, soybean (Glyicine max), tomato (Lycopersicon esulentum) and mustard (Sinapis alba) and two monocotyledonous species, oat (Avena sativa) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) no effects were recorded after 21 or 22 days exposure up to a concentration of 1000 mg/kg dw (Goodband, 2011).

Overall, the studies indicate that the substance GTL Base Oil Distillatesis of low toxicity to terrestrial organisms. Given the high octanol-water partition coefficient values for constituents of GTL Base Oil Distillates, bioavailability is low, even for exposure via contact with soil.
