Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Effect concentration:
500 mg/L

Additional information

A single chronic study is available. This is only reported in basic detail, but is a guideline study in the prefered species and is relatively recent so is considered reliable. The study shows a NOEC greater than the maximum value tested of 500mg/l. QSAR predictions confirm that methoxyethanol is low toxicity to invertebrates at chronic levels of exposure. The measured value is preferred as the key parameter over the model derived data.
