Additional information

The studies on aquatic toxicity were conducted with fish, algae and daphnid. These studies were performed as limit tests with the concentration of 100 mg/L.

In addition to the studies, the aquatic toxicity was determined using the QSAR tool ECOSAR v0.99h.

Input parameters were:

- CAS number: 96-26-4

- molecular weight: 90.08 g/mol

- melting point: 96°C

- water solubility: 930 g/L

The results of the calculations were as follows:

 Organism Duration  Endpoint   Predicted endpoint [mg/L]
Fish  96 h LC50  23522 
Fish  30 d chronic value  1960 
Fish (saltwater) 96 h  LC50  1455 
 Daphnid 48 h  LC50  20928 
Daphnid  16 d EC50 328      
Green algae  96 h  EC50  11194       

The results of the calculations show that the concentrations are distinctly higher than the limit concentration of 100 mg/L tested (and required according to OECD guidelines). The algae was found to be the most sensitive species.
