Description of key information

NOEC (56 d) ≥ 1000 mg/kg dw for Eisenia andrei (OECD 222)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A chronic test with fatty acids, C16-18 and C18-unsatd., tetraesters with pentaerythritol (CAS 68604-44-4) was conducted according to OECD 222 under GLP conditions (Amsel, 2013). Eisenia andrei was exposed to a test concentration of 1000 mg/kg dw in artificial soil for 56 days. Mortality and reproduction were recorded at the end of the study. No effects were observed resulting in a NOEC (28 d) of ≥ 1000 mg/kg dw based on mortality and a NOEC (56 d) of ≥ 1000 mg/kg dw based on reproduction. Due to these results it can be concluded that fatty acids, C16-18 and C18-unsatd., tetraesters with pentaerythritol (CAS 68604-44-4) will not exhibit effects on soil macroorganisms.
