Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

Aquatic toxicity studies of 2-ethylhexanoic acid, iron salt are not available.Thus, read-across to the assessment entities soluble iron substances and 2-ethylhexanoic acidis applied since the ions of 2-ethylhexanoic acid, iron saltdetermine its fate and toxicity in the environment. Relevant effects of soluble iron salts to aquatic invertebrates were not identified. For 2-ethylhexanoate, the lowest EC50 identified amounts to 85.4 mg/L (48-h) based on available data from three studies using a weight of evidence approach.Thus, 2-ethylhexanoic acid, iron salt appears to have a low potential for acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrates.
