EC number: 240-367-6
CAS number: 16260-09-6
No experimental data on the
toxicity of (Z)-N-octadec-9-enylhexadecan-1-amide (oleyl palmitamide,
CAS 16260-09-6) to terrestrial arthropods are available.
The substance is
characterised by a high log Koc (log Koc > 5) indicating a considerable
potential for adsorption to the soil particles but as the substance is
highly insoluble in water (< 0.01 mg/L), only low concentrations are
expected in the pore water. Therefore, tests with soil-dwelling
organisms like earthworm, which allow potential uptake via surface
contact, soil particle ingestion and porewater (ECHA, 2012), are most
relevant for the evaluation of soil toxicity. In addition, in the
absence of a clear indication of selective toxicity, an invertebrate
(earthworm or collembolan) test is preferred, as outlined in ECHA
guidance section R.18.104.22.168, page 122. Thus, it can be assumed that
earthworms would be highly exposed to toxicants in soil and hence are
most sensitive to the potential adverse effects of the substance.
