Description of key information

The estimated chronic value (ChV) for Daphnid for bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is 2.953 mg/l (ECOSAR v1.10) , the NOEC is 2.088 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
2.088 mg/L

Additional information

The chronic aquatic toxicity of fish, Daphnid and algae was estimated using the ECOSAR model v1.10 included in the EpiSuite models of US-EPA. In ECOSAR, substances for which the ecotoxicity is estimated are entitled to chemical classes according to their chemical structure. For each class the ecotox values for acute and chronic endpoints are estimated. Bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is classified under the class of the esters. The estimated chronic value (ChV) for Daphnid is 2.953 mg/l, the NOEC is 2.088 mg/l, calculated by dividing the ChV by √2 (REACH Guidance R10, Table R10-1).

This value can be used for risk assessment.
