Additional information

To determine chronic effects of formic acid to aquatic invertebrates, a semi-static GLP study according to OECD guideline 211 using Daphnia magna was performed. The calculated NOEC value (21d) in this study was 100 mg/L, related to the nominal concentrations which were verified analytically (BASF SE 2007).
