Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

After 72 hours of exposure to geranyl acetate, an EC50 of 3.72 mg/l based on measured values was determined.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The effect of the substance on the growth rate of Desmodesmus subspicatus was investigated in a guideline study according to OECD 201 using the main component of the reaction mass: geranyl acetate, CAS 105-87 -3.

After 72 hours of exposure an EC50 of 3.72 mg/l based on measured values was determined (BASF SE, 2010). The second main component, neryl acetate (CAS 141-12-8), however, is structural homolog to geranyl acetate. Accordingly, the results on growth rate can be used to determine the acute toxicity for the reaction mass.
