Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Short term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates data are available for 2 streams within this Category. The 48 hour EC50 ranged from 0.76 - 2.9 mg/L with the

EL50 ranging from 0.91 - 3.2 mg/L (WAF). One study provided a 96 hour LC50 for a marine invertebrates of 1.4 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

CAS No 68478-10-4 (ACC, 2004e): This is a GLP compliant, guideline study considered adequate for assessment. After Daphnia magna were exposed to WAFs prepared from Dicyclopentadiene/Codimer Concentrate for 48 hours, the EL50 was 0.91 mg/L and the EC50 was 0.76 mg/L.

CAS No 68477-54-3 (ACC, 2004f): This is a GLP compliant, guideline study considered adequate for assessment. The 48 hour EL50 was 3.2 mg/L and the EC50 was 2.9 mg/L (WAF).

CAS No 68477-54-3 (Sabic, 1987a): This is a GLP compliant, equivalent to guideline study. The study was a marine study and no replicates were mentioned. The 96 hour LC50 was 1.4 mg/L and the 96 hour NOEC was 1.0 mg/L.

The authors report results based on nominal loading rates (WAF) and mean measured concentrations. As the test substance is a hydrocarbon stream with various components reporting a measured concentration could be misleading as the measured concentration does not relate to a concentration of the raw stream. Instead, we have used the results reported as WAF, which better represent the potential toxicity of the test substance.
