Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 acid is applied since the ions of2-ethylhexanoic acid, iron saltdetermine its fate and toxicity in the environment. Relevant effects of soluble iron salts to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria were not identified. For 2-ethylhexanoic acid, studies on the alga Scenedesmus subspicatus (new name: Desmodesmus subspicatus) derived an EC50 (72h) of 49.3 mg/L. Thus, 2-ethylhexanoic acid, iron salt appears to have a low potential for toxicity to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria.
