Additional information

Conclusion on classification

As an inorganic substance, dicerium tricarbonate is not biodegradable. Based on the analogy made with soluble salts of cerium, dicerium tricarbonate should not show any potential for bioaccumulation. Short-term tests performed on the three trophic levels (i., daphnids, algae) does not reveal any acute toxicity. Furthermore, the long-term data on daphnids indicates that dicerium tricarbonate presents no chronic adverse effects on this species. As a result, dicerium tricarbonateis not classified regarding its environmental impacts, neither under the criteria of CLP, nor under those of DSD.
