Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

No effects up to the water solubility limit (< 1 mg/L) for aquatic invertebrates (OECD 202/ISO 14669).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Two short-term studies with Daphnia magna, freshwater invertebrates, and one short-term test with Acartia tonsa, a marine invertebrate, forFatty acids, C8-10 (even), C14-18 (even) and C16-18 (even)-unsatd., triesters with trimethylolpropane (former CAS 85186-89-6), are available. In both static GLP-freshwater studies equivalent or similar to OECD 202 no immobilised daphnids or other adverse reactions could be observed for an exposure period of 48 hours (key: EL0 ≥ 100 mg/L, EL50 > 100 mg/L; supporting: NOELR ≥ 1000 mg/L, EL50 > 1000 mg/L). Because of the serial dilution in the supporting study from the highest concentration (1000 mg/L), only the 1000 mg/L test concentration was valid and could be used for evaluation of toxicity of the test substance. In the static GLP-saltwater study (Hudson, 2005) according to ISO 14669 (Determination of acute lethal toxicity to marine copepods) no immobilisation was determined during the 48 h test duration (NOELR ≥ 10000 mg/L, EL50 > 10000 mg/L). Therefore, no toxicities in the range of water solubility (< 1 mg/L) were observed for freshwater and marine invertebrates.
