The substance showed no toxicity to Daphnia magna up to its limit of water solubility (0.5 mg/L), under the conditions of the EEC Annex V C2 test guideline. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Daphnia magna were exposed to the substance for 48 hours in two studies (SEPC, 1993 and Safepharm Laboratories Ltd., 1998) without or with auxiliary solvent (dimethylformamide) respectively, according to the EEC Annex V C2 test guideline. Both studies were undertaken up to the limit of solubility (0.05 or 0.1 mg/L respectively). No immobilisation of the Daphnia was observed. The 48-h EC50s were greater than 0.5 or 0.1 mg/L, respectively
