Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

Discard alcohol (CAS #84852-02-8) is a mixture of components: a mixture of C8-13 branched hydrocarbons, C9-13 branched primary alcohols and C10-12 cyclic ethers. All components are multi-isomeric. The composition is variable. All structures are branched and multi-isomeric. For the purposes of read across, data from an equivalent alcohol will be used (isodecanol, CAS #68526-85-2), as will data from a commercial substance (Vammar D10, CAS #98072-31-2) that contains similar aliphatic ethers to discard alcohol. 


There was no evidence of skin sensitization in guinea pigs induced and challenged with CAS # 98072 -31 – 2 or CAS #68526-85-2.

Skin Sensitization – Negative for guinea pigs (OECD TG 406).

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Additional information:

There are no data which have evaluated the skin and respiratory sensitization potential of CAS # 98072 -31 - 2 in humans.  However, a skin sensitization study utilizing CAS # 98072 -31 – 2 found no indication of skin sensitization in guinea pigs.  It is presumed that CAS # 98072 -31 - 2 will not be a respiratory sensitizing agent. 

Migrated from Short description of key information:
No data

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification for sensitization is indicated according to the general classification and labeling requirements for dangerous substances and preparations (Directive 67-548-EEC) or the classification, labeling and packaging (CLP) regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
