There is no study on chronic toxicity towards terrestrial plants
available using p-cresol as test substance. In order to get a
comprehensive data set for p-cresol a read-across from m-cresol is
Concerning terrestrial toxicity of m-cresol, there is only one study
available which is conducted with soil as substrate. In this study, the
toxicity of m-cresol to lettuce seedlings (Lactuca sativa) was
determined according to OECD Guideline 208 in soil. The EC50 was 96
mg/kg soil d.w. after 14 d. The effect concentration was normalised to
an OC content of 3.4% , resulting in a corrected EC50 of 233 mg/kg.
However, in case of only one test result is available, the risk
assessment should be performed both on this test result and on the basis
of the outcome of the aquatic toxicity data. Therefore the equilibrium
partitioning method with the PNEC for aquatic organisms is also taken
into account for assessment.
