Endpoint:
acute toxicity: inhalation
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The analogue Calcium Acetate which shares the same functional group with Sodium Acetate, also has comparable values for the relevant molecular properties for the acute inhalation toxicity endpoint.

Results and discussion

Effect levels
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LC50
Effect level:
> 5.81 mg/L air
Based on:
test mat.
Exp. duration:
4 h
Other findings:
Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue Calcium Acetate (LC 50 for female rats > 5.6 mg/L air) and the molecular weights, the read-across approach is applied and the LC50 for substance Sodium Acetate is calculated to be higher than 5.81 mg/L air under test conditions.

The analogue Calcium Acetate, which shares the same functional group with Sodium Acetate, also has comparable values for the relevant molecular properties. These properties are:
- a low log Pow value which is - 1.38 for Calcium Acetate and -3.72 for Sodium Acetate,
- a similar water solubility which is 1.0 g/mL at 25 ºC for Calcium Acetate and 1.25 g/mL for Sodium Acetate at 25 ºC, and
- molecular weights which are 158.166 for Calcium Acetate and 82.03 for Sodium Acetate.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not classified
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The LC50 for substance Sodium Acetate is calculated to be higher than 5.81 mg/L air under test conditions.
Executive summary:

Based on the experimental results (reported under the endpoint record 07.02.02_02 CaAc) obtained with the analogue Calcium Acetate (LC 50 for female rats > 5.6 mg/L air) and the molecular weights, the read-across approach is applied and the LC50 for substance Sodium Acetate is calculated to be higher than 5.81 mg/L air under test conditions.
