Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Details on study design:
ACD/Percepta (Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., Pharma Algorithms, Inc.) (release 2012) is a suite of comprehensive tools for the prediction of basic toxicity endpoints, including hERG Inhibition, CYP3A4 Inhibition, Genotoxicity, Acute Toxicity, Aquatic Toxicity, Eye/Skin Irritation, Endocrine System Disruption, and Health Effects. Predictions are made from chemical structure and based upon large validated databases and QSAR models, in combination with expert knowledge of organic chemistry and toxicology. It also allows to evaluate the robustness of the prediction by examining compounds similar to the target from the training set, together with literature data and reference. The models also provide an estimation of the reliability of the prediction, by a reliability index (RI). This index provides values in a range from 0 to 1 and gives an evaluation of whether a submitted compound falls within the Model Applicability Domain. Estimation of the RI takes into account the following two aspects: similarity of the tested compound to the training set and the consistency of experimental values for similar compounds. If the RI is less than 0.3 the prediction has to be considered not reliable while if RI is more than 0.5 the prediction results are considered reliable.

Migrated information
The most probable acute toxicity hazard categories for 1-(4-(2-(benzyloxy)ethoxy)phenyl)-1,2-diphenylbutane-1,4-diol was found to
be OECD Category IV (harmful if swallowed), or OECD Category V (non toxic; may be harmful if swallowed).
