Description of key information

No reliable data are available for the effect of synthetic rutile on terrestrial plants and read-across to upgraded ilmenites (UGI) is used. Reliable chronic toxicity data are available for the effect of upgraded ilmenite slags (>80% TiO2) to a monocotyledon and dicotyledon plant (barley and lettuce, respectively). No significant effect was seen up to the largest dose tested, resulting in an unbounded NOEC of >= 100,000 mg/kg dw.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for terrestrial plants:
100 000 mg/kg soil dw
