No chronic aquatic toxicity data are available for farnesene.
Based on a read-across study with a structural analogue - farnesane, the NOEC for chronic toxicity of farnesene to fish is predicted to be greater than the limit of water solubility (11 μg/L).
There are no chronic data on the
aquatic toxicity of farnesene. In a read-across chronic 'early life'
stage study in fathead minnows with farnesane, the NOEC was 66 μg
a.i./L. The LOEC and the Maximum Acceptable Toxicant Concentration was
estimated to be >66 μg a.i./L, the highest concentration tested. The
measured concentrations were greater than the known water solubility of
farnesane (0.25 μg/L). Nevertheless, the lack of effects in this study
confirm no toxicity at the limit of water solubility.
on read-across to the analogue farnesane, it is predicted that farnesene
will not cause toxicity to fish at the limit of solubility (11μg/L).
Justification for the use of read-across data can be found in section 13
of the dossier.
