Additional information

To determine the short-term toxicity of 3,3'-iminodi(propylamine) (CAS 56 -18 -8) to aquatic invertebrates, a static 48 -h acute Daphnia magna toxicity study was conducted according to EU Method C2 (BASF AG 1989, report no. 1/0499/2/89). The nominal test concentrations ranged from 7.81 to 500 mg/L. The pH value of the test solutions was not adjusted. The 48 -h EC50 was estimated to be 37.4 mg/L, based on nominal concentrations. The highest test concentration of 500 mg/L was also tested after neutralising the test solution, but no significant differences to not-neutralised conditions were found.

In conclusion, 3,3'-iminodi(propylamine) is considered to be acutely harmful to aquatic invertebrates.
