Additional information

An acute avian toxicity study has been conducted with GTL Gasoil (C8-C26) (Burri, 2011). The test was conducted in accordance with OECD 205 and GLP.

The acute oral LC50 of GTL Gasoil (C8-C26) in Japanese quail was determined to be >5000 mg/kg diet. The NOEC was determined to be ≥5000 mg/kg diet. The LC50 based on GTL Gasoil (C8-C26) intake was >1163.9 mg/kg body weight/day.

The data is used as read-across data to Alkanes, C16 -C18 branched and linear.
