Administrative data

Endpoint:
eye irritation
Remarks:
other: read-across from in vivo experimental test with an analogue
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:

Other effects:
Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue Potassium Acetate, which is considered to be not irritating for New Zealand White rabbits eyes, and applying the read-across approach, the substance Sodium Acetate is also considered as not irritating under test conditions.

The analogue Potassium 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 -3.72 for Potassium Acetate and for Sodium Acetate,
- a similar water solubility which is 2.5 g/mL at 20 ºC for Potassium Acetate and 1.25 g/mL for Sodium Acetate at 25 ºC, and
- similar molecular weights which are 98.14 for Potassium Acetate and 82.03 for Sodium Acetate.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The substance Sodium Acetate is considered as not irritating under test conditions.
Executive summary:

Based on the experimental results (reported under the endpoint record 07.03.02_02 KAc) obtained with the analogue Potassium Acetate, which is considered to be not irritating for New Zealand White rabbits eyes, and applying the read-across approach, the substance Sodium acetate is also considered as not irritating under test conditions.
