EC number: 295-407-5 | CAS number: 92045-24-4 A complex combination of hydrocarbons that is obtained by treatment of light vacuum petroleum gas oils with hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst. It consists of hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C13 through C30 and boiling in the range of approximately 230°C to 450°C (446°F to 842°F).
Information on short term toxicity to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria was available for vacuum gas oils, hydrocracked gas oils and distillate fuels.
The Shell (6304) study reported a 72 h ErL50 value of 22 mg/L for diesel fuel. Clark (2003) reported the same 72 h value when ultra low sulphur diesel was tested (EL50 = 22 mg/L). The Shell (6304) study has been chosen to represent this endpoint. It is a reliable (2), GLP compliant, near guideline study with no restrictions, it is fully adequate for assessment.
