Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Discard alcohol (CAS #84852-02-8) is a mixture of components: a mixture of C8-13 branched hydrocarbons, C9-13 branched primary alcohols and C10-12 cyclic ethers. All components are multi-isomeric. The composition is variable. All structures are branched and multi-isomeric. For the purposes of read across, data from an equivalent alcohol will be used (isodecanol, CAS #68526-85-2), as will data from a commercial substance (Vammar D10, CAS #98072-31-2) that contains similar aliphatic ethers to discard alcohol. 


Acute exposure to CAS # 98072 -31 -2 and CAS #68526-85-2 has a low potential for toxicity via the oral route.  The LD50 via the oral route is greater than 5,000 mg/kg and 2648 mg/kg, respectively.


Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification for acute toxicity is indicated according to the general classification and labeling requirements for dangerous substances and preparations (Directive 67-548-EEC) or the classification, labeling and packaging (CLP) regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
