Additional information

Results from acute aquatic ecotoxicity tests indicates that effects are not observed at concentrations far in excess of the solubility of the test substance.

Conclusion on classification

EC and LC50s from acute tests for Santicizer 261A conducted both with and without an excess of solvent indicate effects are not observed at the limit of solubility of the substance (0.0098 mg/L at 25°C).

 

Poorly water soluble substances which do not exert acute toxicity at their limit of solubility may require a precautionary classification of R53 ‘May cause long term adverse effects in the aquatic environment’ under the DSD and Chronic Category 4 under the CLP Regulations. However, this precautionary stance is not required for Santicizer 261A as it is considered readily biodegradable.

Santicizer 261A is therefore not classified in respect of the environment.
