Description of key information

Studies performed on toxicity to Daphnia magnaof pentaerythritol tetranitrate at different concentrations show that the effects caused are not associated to the substance, but to the pH of the solution, which is much higher than environmental.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
292 mg/L

Additional information

LD50 values obtained from studies performed on toxicity to Daphnia magna of pentaerythritol tetranitrate at different concentrations show that the substance is not toxic and mortality is associated to high pH.
