Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The 48 hour contact LC50- value on the earthworm Eisenia fetida was determined to be of 60 μg/cm2.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The effects of 1,2-dichloroethane on the earth worm Eisenia fetida has been investigated. Animals were exposed in the dark for 48 hr towards the material by means of a filter paper. A 48 hr LC50-value of 60 μg/cm2 was derived from this investigation (Neuhauser et al. 1985 ; Neuhauser et al. 1986). No PNECsoil can be derived from this study due to the use of filter paper instead of soil, therefore the PNECsoil was determined using equilibrium partitioning.
