Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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

Japan MOE (1999) provided a 21 day NOEC of 0.32 mg/L o-sec-butylphenol, the structural analogue of o-tert-butylphenol.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water invertebrates

Fresh water invertebrates
Effect concentration:
0.32 mg/L

Additional information

There are no reliable (Klimisch 1 or 2) long-term toxicity studies with invertebrates available with o-tert-butylphenol. However, a reliable long-term study with invertebrates is available for the structural analogue o-sec-butylphenol and is documented in this dossier.

Japan MOE (1999) conducted a reliable (Klimisch 1) GLP compliant long-term toxicity test following OECD 211 methods. Daphnia magna were exposed to measured concentrations of 0.0032, 0.01, 0.032, 0.1, 0.32, 1.0, and 3.2 mg/L of o-sec-butylphenol.  The 21-day NOEC based on reproduction was 0.32 mg/L.  Consequently this value will be taken as the long-term toxicity in aquatic invertebrates endpoint for o-tert-butylphenol.
