Description of key information

LC50 > 20,000 mg/kg for Eisenia fetida (OECD 207)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There are no studies available on the toxicity of Fatty acids, C16-18, butyl esters (CAS No. 85408-76-0) on terrestrial macroorganisms. The assessment was therefore based on a study conducted with the category member isopropyl myristate (CAS No. 110-27-0).

The study conducted with isopropyl myristate (CAS No. 110-27-0) was performed as a limit test according to OECD guideline 207 and GLP (Steber, 1999). The test organism Eisenia fetida was exposed to isopropyl myristate in artificial soil for 14 days, at the nominal test concentration 20,000 mg/kg. No mortality occurred during the test period.
