Description of key information

(96 h) LC50 3.1 mg/L N. spinipes (brackish) (r-a)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
3.1 mg/L

Additional information

A reliable 96 h LC50 value of 3.1 mg/L has been determined for the effects of decanol (CAS 112-30-1) on the mortality of the brackish copepod Nitocra spinipes. This is the lowest reliable value available for this endpoint and has been selected as key.

No data is currently available with decanol branched and linear (CAS 90342-32-8), however data is available with the closely related substance decanol (CAS 112-30-1). It is possible to validly read-across data between the two substances, as outlined in the overall aquatic toxicity endpoint summary.
