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.

Description of key information

The 96-hour LC50 of HFE s-601 to the fish Oryzias latipes (OECD203) was >0.572 mg/L.  No toxicity was observed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The toxicity of HFE s-601 to fish was assessed in three studies using Oryzias latipes. The key result is taken from a semistatic study. Solutions were prepared by overnight stirring at a loading rate 50 µg/L followed by removal of undissolved material. No dispersing aids were used. Solution renewal was every 24 hours. Analytically determined concentrations declined to 42.4 - 55.6% of starting concentration during each 24-hour interval. The time weighted average concentration was 0.572 mg/L. No toxicity was observed. The LC50 was therefore >0.572 mg/L, and the NOEC was 0.572 mg/L.

The two studies done as preliminary tests supporting BCF tests, no toxicity was observed for a 10 mg/L solution of HFE s-601 after 96 hours (study 1), and the LC50 was >10 mg/L after 96 hours (study 2). These tests were conducted using a mixture of dispersing aids, and are not considered reliable. Nevertheless, they provide additional information on the lack of toxicity of HFE s-601.
