Additional information

Acute avian toxicity studies have been conducted with GTL Gasoil and GTL Base Oil Distillates (Burri, 2011a and 2011b). The tests were conducted in accordance with OECD 205 and GLP.

The acute oral LC50of GTL Gasoil and GTL Base Oil Distillates in Japanese quail was determined to be >5000 mg/kg diet. The NOEC was determined to be ≥5000 mg/kg diet. The LC50based on GTL Gasoil intake was >1163.9 mg/kg body weight/day, and for GTL Base Oil Distillates >1170 mg/kg body weight/day.

These data are used as read-across data to Hydrocarbons, C16-C22, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics.
