Description of key information

One reliable (Klimisch 1; Klimisch 2 when used for read-across) short-term toxicity study for fish was available for Alchisor CAL 123 with read-across to Alchisor CAL 145.  The short-term toxicity of Alchisor CAL 123 to the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) was reported by Claude & Krueger (2010) in an OECD 203 guideline and GLP compliant study.  Fish were exposed to toxicant in measured concentrations for 96 hours, resulting in a 96-hr LC50 of >100 mg/L.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
100 mg/L

Additional information

Alchisor CAL 145 comprises alkenes C13-14 hydroformylation products and read-across from the chemically-similar Alchisor CAL 123 has been used in this hazard assessment as defined in the `Read-Across Justification Document'. Short-term toxicity data to fish relating to Alchisor CAL 123 was available for read-across to this dossier. One reliable (Klimisch 1; Klimisch 2 when used for read-across) short-term toxicity study for the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) was reported by Claude & Krueger (2010) in an OECD 203 guideline and GLP compliant study. Fish were exposed to the test substance in measured concentrations for 96 hours, resulting in a 96-hr LC50 of >100 mg/L. This reliable study result is designated as Key for the short-term toxicity to fish endpoint.
