Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

The 14 day LC50 value to earthworms was determined to be >1000 mg/kg.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

An OECD 207 study (Earthworm, Acute Toxicity Test) was conducted on a structural analogue read-across substance (Gel All MD) to assess the acute toxicity of the substance to earthworms. The read-across substance (Gel All MD) is a close structural analogue of Gel All DX and comparison of the substances have shown them to be highly similar in phyisco-chemical properties and (eco)toxicological profile. It is therefore considered that the results from the read-across substance are valid for the assessment of Gel All DX.

6 replicate vessels, each containing 10 worms, were prepared at a concentration of 1000 mg/kg using an artificial soil. The exposure duration was 14 days.

A concurrent control (without exposure the test material) was also run. A positive control using Chloroacetamide was also run.

There were no significant mortalities or other adverse reactions to exposure in 60 earthworms exposed to a concentration of 1000 mg/kg for a period of 14 days. There were no significant differences between the worm weights of the control and 1000 mg/kg group on Days 0 and 14.

The 14 day LC50 value has been determined to be >1000 mg/kg.

The results from the positive control (Chloroacetamide) gave a 14 -day LC50 of 15 mg/kg, which was within the normal range for this compound.
