Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

The read across from 1-hexanol (Sharp 1978;) suggests that 2-methyl-1-heptanol would not be sensitising. In addition, a reliability 4 supporting study in human was available which found the linear isomer, 1-octanol not to be a sensitiser in man.

Migrated from Short description of key information:
No high reliability studies for skin sensitisation of 2-methyl-1-heptanol were available. The result was therefore read across from 1-hexanol, due to the similarity of the substances.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on read across from the structurally similar substance 1-hexanol, it is concluded here that 2-methyl-1-heptanol does not require classification for skin sensitisation.
