Additional information

Acute freshwater data was available for three trophic levels, fish, daphnia and algae. Aquatic PNECs were calculated from the lowest L(E)C50 of 4.34 mg/L. The PNECs were as follows:

PNECfreshwater = 0.00434 mg/L

PNECmarine water = 0.000434 mg/L

PNECintermittent = 0.0434mg/L

The PNEC for the STP was calculated from a respiration inhibition test EC50 of 384 mg/L.

PNECstp = 3.84 mg/L

For soil and sediment PNECs the equilibrium partitioning method is used. EPM PNECs were calculated in EUSES with the following key inputs:

KOC: 1,000,000 (EUSES maximum)

Molecular weight: 617.02 g/mol

Vapour pressure: 0 pa (vapour pressure is extremely low so is set to 0 for practical purposes)

Water solubility: 0.00016 (worst case value for equilibrium partitioning).

The PNECs were as follows:

PNEC sediment = 434 mg/kg dw

PNECmarine sediment = 43.4 mg/kg dw

PNECsoil = 86.78 mg/kg/dw

Conclusion on classification

The lowest acute EC50/LC50 derived was 4.34 mg/L. As the test substance is not considered readily biodegradable this leads to a classification of toxic to aquatic organisms - chronic category 2.

H411 - toxic to aquatic organisms with long lasting effects.
