Description of key information

NOEC (14 d) >= 654 mg/kg for Eisenia sp. (OECD 207) (read-across)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There are no data available on toxicity to soil macroorganisms of D-Glucose, reaction products with alcohols C16-18 (even numbered) (excess). However, there are reliable data for category member substances which are considered suitable for read-across based on a category approach. This read-across is in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 Annex XI, 1.5 and justified in detail in the overall summary (IUCLID Chapter 6.1) and within the category justification attached in IUCLID Section 13. In this case of read-across, the best suited (highest degree of structural similarity, nearest physico-chemical properties) read-across substance was used for the assessment. Nevertheless, as it can be seen in the data matrix of the category justification in IUCLID Section 13 and the overall summary (IUCLID Chapter 6.1), all reliable data in the category support the hazard assessment of each category member by showing a consistent pattern of results.

No effects of the category member D-Glucopyranose, oligomeric, C10-16-alkyl glycosides to soil macroorganisms were observed at the highest test concentration of 654 mg/kg. One study is available investigating the effects of the substance to soil macroorganisms. The test was performed according to OECD guideline 207 with the annelid Eisenia sp. (Steber et al., 1995). At test termination after 14 days, no effects were observed at least in the highest test concentration of 654 mg/kg.
