EC number: 271-237-7
CAS number: 68526-89-6
A complex combination of hydrocarbons produced by the distillation of products from the hydrogenation of isononanal from the hydroformylation of octene. It consists predominantly of C9-10 primary aliphatic alcohols, C10-20 dimer alcohols, C>18 acetals and esters and C>18 acid sodium salts and boils in the range of approximately 200°C to 400°C (392°F to 752°F).

In an acute oral toxicity study (OECD 420, Evonik, 1571/0016, 2008),
groups of fasted 8 -12 week old rats (5 female Wistar rats) were given a
single oral dose of the test substance at 2000 mg/kg bw. and observed
for 14 days. No mortality occurred and normal body weight gain were
found in this study. There were no signs of systemic toxicity and no
deviations from normal morphology were found. Two further supporting
studies showed similar results.
In an acute dermal toxicity study (OECD 402, BASF, 11A0015/089114,
2009), groups of 8 - 12 week old rats (5/sex) were dermally exposed to
undiluted test substance for 24 hours to at least 10% of body surface
area at 2000 mg/kg bw. Animals then were observed for 14 days. No
mortality occurred and no signs of systemic toxicity or skin effects
were observed in the animals. No local effects were seen. The mean body
weight of the male animals increased within the normal range throughout
the study period. The mean body weight of the female animals slightly
decreased during the first post-exposure observation week, but increased
during the second week within the normal range. No macroscopic
pathologic abnormalities were noted in the animals examined at the end
of the study.
The available experimental test data are reliable and suitable for
classification purposes under Regulation 1272/2008. As a result the
substance is not considered to be classified for acute oral or dermal
toxicity under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
