Description of key information

Testing of diisopropyl ether regarding toxicity to terrestrial arthropods is scientifically unjustified, as due to high volatility and consequently low sorption to soil and sediment no exposure is expected. This is confirmed by the outcome of the CSR.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Diisopropyl ether has a very high volatility (see section 4.6, vapour pressure being 198.65 hPa at 20 °C) and low Log Pow (2.4 at 20 °C). Consequently, also the Log Koc is low (2.04) and adsorption as well as accumulation in terrestrial environment is not significant. Consequently, exposure of terrestrial arthropods to diisopropyl ether is negligible.
