Description of key information

Read-across to the assessment entities soluble zinc substances and neodecanoic acid is applied for the assessment of zinc neodecanoate, basic since the ions of zinc neodecanoate, basic determine its fate and toxicity in the environment. Reliable data available for soluble zinc substances and neodecanoate indicate that the moiety of ecotoloxicological concern are zinc cations. NOEC and EC10 values are available for 18 different terrestrial plant species and range from 32 mg Zn/kgdw for Trifolium pratense and Vicia sativa to 5855 mg Zn/kg dw for Triticum aestivum. Neodecanoate is mobile and does not have a high potential to partition into soil. Data on the toxicity to algae point to a low (if any) toxic potential. A similar low potential for toxicity of neodecanoate may be assumed for terrestrial plants.
