Conclusion on classification

Aquatic ecotoxicity data on tin is available for algae, invertebrates and fish. The test data on studies that are that based truly soluble tin indicate no adverse effects are expected at the range of concentrations of tin permitted by its very low solubility. The solubility of tin is very low due to its tendency to precipitate out of solution. The potential adverse effects of the precipitate were also studied in a chronic chironomid sediment and respiration inhibition tests and no significant adverse effects were seen. Therefore, an environmental classification is not proposed.

This approach was also followed in the EU RAR for aluminium chloride and several aluminium alkyls. The aluminium substances were not classified because aluminium precipitates at an environmental pH range.
