EC number: 232-315-6
CAS number: 8002-74-2
A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained from petroleum fractions by solvent crystallization (solvent deoiling) or by the sweating process. It consists predominantly of straight chain hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly greater than C20.
Standard bioaccumulation studies are not applicable to petroleum UVCB
substances, therefore in accordance with Annex XI Section 1.3 testing is
not scientifically necessary and the endpoint has been fulfilled using
QSAR calculations for relevant constituents. Full justifications for
this QSAR are presented in 'Attached justification', but in brief these
are justified because:
- the results are obtained from a QSAR model whose scientific validity
has been established
- petroleum substances fall within the applicability domain of the QSAR
- results are adequate for the purposes of risk assessment
- adequate and reliable documentation is provided
Calculated BCF for constituents of this substance range between 0.42 and
25700 L/kg. It should be borne in mind that this is the full range of
predicted values, and that this may be misleading or unrepresentative of
the properties of the UVCB substance as a whole. The range should
therefore be treated with caution and not taken out of context. The
substance is a hydrocarbon UVCB. Standard tests for this endpoint are
intended for single substances and are not appropriate for this complex
substance. However, this endpoint is characterised using quantitative
structure property relationships for representative hydrocarbon
structures that comprise the hydrocarbon blocks used to assess the
environmental risk of this substance with the PETRORISK model (see
Product Library in PETRORISK spreadsheet attached in IUCLID section 13).
For purposes of PBT assessment, the substance has been assessed using a
combination of QSAR predictions and confirmatory experimental testing
for representative constituents using a hydrocarbon block approach. For
details see report titled 'Evaluation of PBT for Petroleum Substances'
in IUCLID section 13.
