Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Short term toxicity to fish data are available for 2 streams within this Category. The 96 hour LC50s ranged from 0.58 - 13.5 mg/L. The 96 hour LL50 range based on two studies was 0.73 - 6.3 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

CAS No 68478-10-4 (ACC, 2004c): This is a GLP compliant, guideline study. After Oncorhynchus mykiss were exposed to WAFs prepared from Dicyclopentadiene/Codimer Concentrate for 96 hours, the LL50 was 0.73 mg/L and the LC50 was 0.58 mg/L.


CAS No 68477-54-3 (ACC, 2004d): This is a GLP compliant, guideline study. The LC50 of Low DCPD Resin Oil (MRD-03-630) was determined to be 6.1 mg/L and the LL50 was 6.3 mg/L after 96 hours of exposure.


CAS No 68477-54-3 (Sabic, 1989b): This is a GLP compliant, guideline study and is considered adequate for assessment. The 48 and 96 hour LC50 toxicity of C9-Resin feed to Brachydanio rerio was determined as 13.5 mg/L. After 96 hours of exposure, all animals were alive at 10 mg/L but total mortality was observed at 18 mg/L. After 96 hours of exposure, the NOEC was determined as 5.6 mg/L (mortality and condition) based on nominal concentrations.


The authors report results based on nominal loading rates (WAF) and mean measured concentrations. As the test substance is a hydrocarbon stream with various components reporting a measured concentration could be misleading as the measured concentration does not relate to a concentration of the raw stream. Instead, we have used the results reported as WAF, which better represent the potential toxicity of the test substance.
