EC number: 200-816-9 | CAS number: 74-86-2
The estimated 96-hour LC50 for fresh water fish is 545 mg/L.
Measured data are not available for the aquatic toxicity endpoints. In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII and VIII, the acute toxicity tests do not need to be conducted if there are mitigating factors indicating that aquatic toxicity is unlikely to occur. Acetylene is a gas at standard temperature and pressure and is expected to partition primarily to air.
The ECOSAR model (Nabholz and Mayo-Bean 2009) has been used to calculate the likely toxicity of acetylene to aquatic organisms. The ECOSAR model is an appropriate QSAR model for Acetylene as it is based on a related chemical dataset that calculates the toxicity of neutral organic hydrocarbons whose mode of action is non-polar narcosis.
