Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

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.
