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

48-hr EC50, immobilization, of FC-72 to Daphnia magna: >84.1 µg/L (water solubility value). FC-72 is not toxic at the limit of water solubility by read-across.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

FC-72 is a member of the Perfluorinated Organic Chemicals, C5-C18 category. Recent, high-quality studies are available for toxicity to aquatic invertebrates of several category members including the next higher member of perfluoroalkanes group (i.e., perfluoroheptanes). In all cases, no toxicity was observed at the limit of solubility. The highest attainable measured concentrations ranged from 1.74 µg/L to 408 µg/L in these acute Daphnia toxicity studies. Loading rates were approximately 1000 mg/L except in the case of FC-770, which had a loading rate of 100 mg/L. This consistent lack of toxicity across members of the category is used for read-across to FC-72. Please see IUCLID section 13 for the category justification and a matrix of aquatic toxicity data for members of the Perfluorinated Organic Chemicals C5-C18 category.
