EC number: 203-311-1 | CAS number: 105-58-8
Aquatic environment classification:
Diethyl carbonate proved to be readily biodegradable (>81% biodegradation after 28 d).
The lowest acute EC/LC50 value in aquatic tests is the L(E)C50>45 mg/L for fish (calculated).
Due to the fact that diethyl carbonate is proven to be readily biodegradable and because of its low log Kow (1.21-1.33) the substance is not classified as dangerous/hazardous for the environment according to Directive 67/548/EEC and according to the Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation):
Lowest reliable L(E)C50 value: >45 mg/L fish (calculated)
Ready biodegradable yes
log Pow < 3
Special concern: no
According to 67/548/EEC Annex 1: not classified
According to GHS:
Physico-chemical hazard: Flammable liquid 3 (H226)
Hazardous to the environment not classified, no hazard statement
Reason for classification: L(E)C50: > 45 mg/L; readily biodegradable, log Pow<4
Hazardous to the atmospheric environment:
(Hazardous to the ozone layer: This includes substances which are listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 of the European Parliament and of the Council of substances that deplete the ozone layer (1) and its subsequent amendments): Diethyl carbonate is not listed in Annex I of (EC) No 2037/2000.
Labelling: No Signal word and Pictogram for environmental hazards
