Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

No toxic effects up to the limit of water solubility (< 0.02 mg/L) for Daphnia magna (OECD 202)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One GLP Guideline study conducted according to OECD 202 is available investigating the short-term effects of tetradecyl myristate (CAS 3234-85-3) to freshwater invertebrates (Schlechtriem, 2012). Daphnia magna was exposed to a Water Accommodated Fraction (WAF) of nominal 100 mg/L in a limit test for 48 h. GC/EI-MS analysis resulted in a measured geometric mean concentration of 0.128 µg/L. No immobilization was recorded after 48 h resulting in an EL50 of > 0.128 µg/L (measured, geometric mean) and > 100 mg/L (nominal), respectively. Thus it can be concluded that no toxicological effects on aquatic invertebrates are expected up to the limit of water solubility for tetradecyl myristate.
