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

n/i-C13 -C15 –aldehydes are acutely toxic to fish. The LC50 (96 hrs) was >0.4 and <0.9 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Effect concentration:
0.8 mg/L

Additional information

The acute toxicity of n/i-C13 -C15 –aldehydes was tested compliant with GLP in a valid OECD TG 203 (1992) assay using zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio), using Tween 80 as emusifier. The analytically verified concentrations were 0, 0.4, 0.9, and 1.6 mg/L. A solvent control with emulsifier Tween 80 was included.

After 96 hours mortality was 0, 71, and 100% in groups exposed to the low (0.4 mg/L mean measured), intermediate (0.9 mg/L mean measured), and high (1.6 mg/L mean measured) test concentration. The LC50(96 hrs)was >0.4 mg/L and <0.9 mg/L in this study (Hoechst, 1994). For the purpose of assessing the PNEC, the 96 -h LC50 was recalculated by forming the geometric mean of the 96 -h LC0 and LC100. This resulted in a 96 -h LC50 of 0.8 mg/L.

This study is considered to be valid and useful for assessment.
