Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Administrative data

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

2-Methylpyridine was tested in guideline mutagenicity protocols in bacterial and mammalian cellsin vitroand found to be non-mutagenic. The substance was also studied in a chromosomal aberrations assay, and was concluded to be non-clastogenic. Additional earlier published Ames studies support the conclusion that the substance is not mutagenic.

Justification for selection of genetic toxicity endpoint
experimental data

Short description of key information:
Non-mutagenic in the bacterial reverse mutation assay (Ames)

Endpoint Conclusion: No adverse effect observed (negative)

Justification for classification or non-classification

2-Methylpyridine was tested in mutagenicity and cytogenicity protocols in bacterial and mammalian cellsin vitroand found to be non-genotoxic. These findings do not support the criteria for classification and labelling in Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
