Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

(72 h) ErC50 0.23, EbL50 0.03 mg/L R. subcapitata

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A reliable 72 h ErL50 value of 0.23 mg/L water accomodated fractions (WAFs) and a EbL50 value of based on growth rate an EC50 value of 0.084 mg/l WAFs and a NOELR value of 0.03 mg/L WAFs based on growth rate and biomass have been determined for the effects on Alcohols, C12-13 on the freshwater algae Raphidocelis subcapitata.

Other reliable studies report ErL50s in the range 0.24 to 2.2 mg/L based on growth.

The presence of branched structures does not appear confer it any different ecotoxicological properties compared to the Alcohols, C12 -13 linears only substance. Therefore the data is freely read-across between Alcohols, C12 -13 -branched and Alcohols, C12 -13 substances.

In some cases the CAS and chemical identity stated refer to SDA nomenclature for this substance. In REACH substance identification it is necessary to be more specific as to the chain lengths present. Full details may be found in the CSR
