Description of key information

Toxicity to terrestrial plant:

The test material Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether sweetener and floral agent .It is also used in jasmine, orange blossom, Cologne-based and hence considered to have negligible direct or indirect exposure to soil . The half-life period of Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether in soil is estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs). Based on this half-life value of Ethyl 2-naphthyl ether, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in the soil environment and the exposure risk to soil dwelling animals is moderate to low.  

 

Key value for chemical safety assessment
