Description of key information

Alcohols, C11-14-iso, C13-rich is a non-polar narcotic, therefore, the application of EqP Theory is appropriate.  In addition, plants are generally less sensitive than other terrestrial animal species (Sverdrup, et.al., 2002).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Feasibility of performing a toxicity study with terrestrial plants has some practical difficulties associated with it due to the rapid biodegradability of Alcohols, C11 -14 -iso, C13 -rich. Data on other alcohols (isopropyl alcohol) indicate aquatic organisms have similar sensitivity consistent with narcotic mode of action. This substance is a non-polar narcotic, therefore, the application of EqP Theory is appropriate. In addition, plants are generally less sensitive than other terrestrial animal species (Sverdrup, et.al., 2002).
