No toxic effects to freshwater fish up to the limit of water solubility.
One study, investigating the short-term toxicity to freshwater
fish for Pentaerythritol tetraesters of n-decanoic, n-heptanoic,
n-octanoic and n-valeric acids (CAS 68424-31-7), was used as read across
for Fatty acids, C5-10 (linear and branched), tetraesters with
pentaerythritol. This substance is structurally and compositionally
related Fatty acids, C5-10 (linear and branched), tetraesters with
pentaerythritol. The semi-static study (Combert and Caunter, 1991) with
Salmo gairdneri equivalent or similar to OECD 203 determined LC50 (96 h)
> 1000 mg/L (nominal). No mortality was observed within the tested
concentration (1000 mg/L nominal) during 96 h exposure. As the test
material did not dissolved completely in the dilution water, the tested
concentration demonstrated a worst case. Due to the low water solubility
of the test substance (< 1 mg/L), no toxicity was observed in the range
of water solubility of the read across substance. In an IUCLID dataset
of 2-ethylhexanoic acid (CAS 149-57-5, European commission, European
Chemicals Bureau, 2000), which is the most critical component, also no
toxicity is demonstrated for freshwater fish (Salmo gairdneri
respectively Lepomis gibbosus, 1979) (LC0 (96 h) = 125 - 160 mg/L, LC50
(96 h) = 180 - 270 mg/L). Based on the results of the analogue
substances, it can be concluded that no toxicological effects on
freshwater fish are expected for Fatty acids, C5-10 (linear and
branched), tetraesters with pentaerythritol.
