Additional information

Data from the 96 hour acute algal toxicity study, among others, was used to support the use of read across from vinyl neodecanoate to vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate. The EC50 in the vinyl 2 -ethylhexanoate algal study was 3.2 mg/L while the EC50 for the vinyl neodecanoate algal study was 3.5 mg/L. This was supporting evidence that, due to structural similarity, the data from vinyl neodecanoate can be read across to vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate.

Based on manufacturing controls and intended use, Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate is not anticipated to be released to the aquatic and terrestrial environments. PNEC values were derived as per ECHA guidance (RIP 3.2, Chapter R. 10) If a release to the environment dose occur a PNEC value of 0.42 ug/L is believed to be protective of fresh water organisms. A PNEC value of 0.011 ug/L is considered to be protective of marine organisms. The PNEC stp based on the results of an O.E.C.D. 209 Testing guideline study is > 5.0 mg/L.

Conclusion on classification

N; R51-53 Dangerous for the environment; Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment. The GHS/CLP classification and labelling is Chronic env. tox Category IV with Hazard statement of, may cause long lasting effects to aquatic life. The Labelling/Signal word is "no signal word".
