Description of key information

Two studies were available for acute toxicity of glycerine carbonate was tested with fish as test species. No mortality was observed in the highest treatments of the two tests, being 1040 mg glycerine carbonate/L and 3000 mg glycerine carbonate/L. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Effect concentration:

Additional information

Two studies were available where acute toxicity of glycerine carbonate was tested using fish as test species. The key study was Aufgerheide (2002) (K1 -score), where no mortality after 96h was noted in the highest test concentration of 1040 mg glycerine carbonate. The second study of Henkel KGaA, indicated same results with a LC50 > 3000 mg glycerine carbonate/L and is used as a supporting study that confirms the results of the Aufgerheide study (2002). Therefore glycerine carbonate can be classified as not acute toxic to fish.

One study was available with glycerol, which is used as a read-across substance. The LC50 was 885 (697 to 1130) mg/l which is comparable with the results of glycerine carbonate.
