Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

In a 'read across' acute daphnia study with diesel fuel the 48hr EL50 was determined to be 210 mg/L based on immobilisation

A supporting QSAR study using PetroTox Model is also available.

Additional information

A sample of diesel fuel was tested in a static 48 -hour acute daphnid (Daphnia magna) test (OECD 202; KS = 1).

Twenty organisms / dose were exposed to diesel fuel WAFs at nominal concentrations of 0, 10, 22, 46, 100, 220, 460 and 1000 mg/L. The EL50 was 210 mg/L.

A supporting QSAR study using the PetroTox Model is also available, which predicted the LL50 value at > 1000 mg/L.
