Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Results based on the test substance linalool

This 21-day Daphnia reproduction study with linalool concludes a NOEC of 9.5 mg/l and an EC50 of 17 mg/l.

Description of key information

One key study was identified: this assessed the long-term toxicity of  the chemical analogue linalool to Daphnia magna, in a 21-day reproduction study: a NOEC of 9.5 mg/l was determined.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Linalool is a close chemical analogue of the test item, with similar physico-chemical properties. Results of its testing for long-term toxicity to Daphnia are therefore deemed suitable to assess the equivalent toxicity of the test item. Linalool gave a 21 -day NOEC value of 9.5 mg/l: it is reasonable to assume that dihydromyrcenol would produce a similar response in freshwater invertebrates.
