Description of key information

No effects up to the limit of water solubility (< 0.05 mg/L; OECD 203).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One GLP Guideline study is available investigating the short-term toxicity of 2-octyldodecyl isooctadecanoate (CAS 93803-87-3) to fish is available (Bogers, 1998). The study was performed according to OECD 203 with the carp Cyprinus carpio. Water Accommodated Fractions (WAF) of nominal 10 and 100 mg/L were prepared and tested under static conditions. A chemical analysis of the test substance concentrations in the test vessels was not possible since no applicable method could be established due to the very low water solubility to detect test concentrations. No mortality was observed after 96 h and therefore a LL50 of > 100 mg/L (nominal) was derived. Based on this result it can be concluded that no toxicological effects on fish are expected up to the limit of water solubility for2-octyldodecyl isooctadecanoate.
