Description of key information

Not anticipated to be carcinogenic.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification for carcinogenicity 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.

Additional information

Studies have not been performed to test the carcinogenic potential of isodecanol. However, based on

other endpoints, it is not expected to present a carcinogenic hazard. As described in section 7.1 –

Toxicokinetic studies for Alcohols, C7-9-iso, C8-rich (Isooctanol; Exxal 8) CAS number 68526-83-0 and

Alcohols, C11-14 iso, C13-rich (Isotridecanol: Exxal 13) CAS number 68526-86-3 will be conducted in

2016-2017. This information will be used to determine if these alcohols are efficiently metabolized as

expected based on data from linear and branched chain alcohols. Furthermore, there are no structural

alerts to suggest these compounds are inherently carcinogenic. Finally, in multiple in vitro genetic toxicity

studies no evidence of mutagenic potential has been identified.
