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).
Skin: not irritating; Evonik, 1571/0017, 2008; OECD Guideline 404Eye: not irritating; Evonik, 1571/0018, 2009; OECD Guideline 405
Primary irritation index = 1.7
In a primary dermal irritation study (OECD 404, Evonik, 1571/0017,
2008), 3 New Zealand White rabbits were dermally exposed to 0.5 mL of
the test substance for 4 hours under semiocclusive conditions. Animals
then were observed for 14 days. Irritation was scored by the method of
Draize as described in the OECD guideline 404. The mean score for the
24, 48 and 72 h reading for erythema was 1.3 and for edema was 0.3. The
skin reactions observed were fully reversible until day 7. In this
study, the test substance is not a dermal irritant. This result is
supported by another study which shows similar results.
An eye irritation test was performed with three male New Zealand White
rabbits acc. to OECD 405 (Evonik, 1571/0018, 2009). Eyes were left
unwashed after application of 0.1 mL test substance and the animals were
observed 72 h. The mean scores for the 24, 48 and 72 h reading for
iritis, cornea opacity and conjunctivae chemosis were 0 at any reading
time point. For conjunctivae redness the mean score was found to be 0.66
which was fully reversible within 48 hours. This result is supported by
another study which shows similar results.
Classification, Labelling, and Packaging Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008
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 skin and eye irritation
under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
