Description of key information

Aquatic toxicity studies with substance zinc dipropionate are not available. In the assessment of substance zinc dipropionate, read-across to the assessment entities soluble zinc substances and propionate is conservatively applied since the ions of substance zinc dipropionate determine its fate and toxicity in the environment. The aquatic hazard assessment is based on the most toxic moiety, i.e. the zinc cation.

Please refer to the section for the respective assessment entity for data on the moieties. In brief:

Propionate:

Long-term toxicity testing in aqautic invertebrates has been waived.

Zinc:

Freshwater:

Data on 13 species available. Species NOECs range between 0.037 and 0.400 mg Zn/l (dissolved concentrations)

Marine:

Data on 26 species available. Species NOECs range between 0.0056 and 0.9 mg Zn/l (dissolved concentrations)
