OTHER TEST CONDITIONS
- Photoperiod: 16h light: 8h dark

EFFECT PARAMETERS MEASURED: mortality was recorded after 2-4, 24, 48, 72 and 96h test duration.
Reference substance (positive control):
no
Key result
Duration:
96 h
Dose descriptor:
LC50
Effect conc.:
1.1 mg/L
Nominal / measured:
nominal
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Basis for effect:
mortality
Details on results:
- Behavioural abnormalities: after 48 hours one fsih showed distrubed equilibrium
- Mortality of control: none
- Any observations (e.g. precipitation) that might cause a difference between measured and nominal values: for the highest concentration a slight turbidity was observed at all observation times
Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
In a GLP study according to the EU Method C.1, the LC50 for acute toxicity to fish of the test substance was determined to be 1.1 mg /l.
Executive summary:

The acute toxicity of the test substance to fish was evaluated in a study according to EU Method C.1 under GLP conditions. In a semi-static study Brachydanio rerio was exposed for 96h. The test material was applied directly to the test vessels. Analytical monitoring in water was omited due to the very low water solubility. All validity criteria were fulfilled. The LC50 is determined to be 1.1 mg/L (nominal concentration based on loadings).

Description of key information

LC50 (96h) = 1.1 mg/L (nominal) for Danio rerio (EU method C.1)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
1.1 mg/L

Additional information

One study investigating the short-term toxicity of the test substance to freshwater fish is available. The study was performed according to GLP and EU method C.1 using Danio rerio as test organism (Scholz 1996). The test material was applied directly to the test vessels. Analytical monitoring in water was omited due to the very low water solubility. All validity criteria were fulfilled. The LC50 is determined to be 1.1 mg/L based on nominal concentration.
