Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
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. 


There was no evidence of skin sensitization in guinea pigs induced and challenged with CAS # 98072 -31 – 2 or CAS #68526-85-2.

Migrated from Short description of key information:
Skin Sensitization – Negative for guinea pigs (OECD TG 406).

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Additional information:

There are no data which have evaluated the skin and respiratory sensitization potential of CAS # 98072 -31 - 2 in humans.  However, a skin sensitization study utilizing CAS # 98072 -31 – 2 found no indication of skin sensitization in guinea pigs.  It is presumed that CAS # 98072 -31 - 2 will not be a respiratory sensitizing agent. 

Migrated from Short description of key information:
No data

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification for sensitization 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.
