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.

Additional information

Since no reliable short-term toxicity tests with fish are available for C16-18 and C18 unsatd. AS Na (CAS 1394155-71-5), in accordance to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 Annex XI, 1.5 a read-across to another structurally related category member was conducted. Read-across data available for C16-18AS Na (CAS 68955-20-4) were used since the toxicity of alkyls sulfates is dependent on the carbon chain length.

Two reliable short-term tests with fish are available for C16-18AS Na (CAS 68955-20-4). The key, non-GLP study was performed according to ISO 7346-1 guideline (Richterich 2001). Zebrafish (Danio rerio) were exposed under semi-static conditions for 96 hours to seven test concentrations up to 22 mg/L of the 55% pure product. No analytical measurements are available. The results show that the 96-hour LC50 value was 5.2 mg a.i./L (nominal concentration). Moreover, Steber (1988) reports a short-term toxicity test with zebrafish performed according to DIN 38412 part 15 method. Fish were exposed for 96 hours to the test substance; no analytical check of the test concentrations is available. The LC100 value after 96 hours was determined as 6.1 mg/L, LC0 was 4.4 mg/L (nominal concentrations). Additional supporting GLP study was performed according to OECD guideline 203 with C14-18 and C18-unsatd. AS Na (CAS 90583-31-6). Rainbow trouts were exposed under static conditions for 96 hours to six test concentrations up to 10 mg/L (nominal concentration equal to 6.54 mg/L measured concentration). The results showed that the 96 -hour LC50 value was between 3.64 mg/L and 6.54 mg/L (measure concentration).

Due to structural and property similarities with the tested category member it can be concluded that the above results apply also to C16-18 and C18 unsatd. AS Na (CAS 1394155-71-5). The 96-hour LC50 value for fish is 5.2 mg/L.
