Toxicity to fish:

The acute lethal toxicity of Soybean oil, epoxidized, reaction products with methanol Danio rerio (Zebrafish) was investigated under static exposure conditions over a period of 96 h according to the guideline OECD 203. At the loading rate of 100 mg/l, none of a total of seven fish died after 96 h of exposure. No mortality was observed in the blank control.Based on these results the LC50is greater than the applied loading rate of 100 mg/l. (BASF, 2013)

Toxicity to daphnia:

The acute toxicity to invertebrates was determined according to OECD 202 as a limit test since the test item is only partially soluble, the water accommodated fraction (WAF) approach was used. No significant effects (≤10% immobilization out of a total of 40 Daphnia) were observed after 24 and 48 h of exposure. Based on these results, the 24 and 48 h EC50 values of Soybean oil, epoxidized, reaction products with methanol, were >100 mg/l (based on loading rate). The no-observed-effect concentrations (NOEC) for 24 and 48 h of exposure were ≥100 mg/l. 100% immobilization was not detected within 48 h of exposure. (BASF, 2012)

Toxicity to algae:

The purpose of this study according to OECD 201 was to determine the effect of the test item on the growth of the freshwater green alga, Desmodesmus subspicatus. The 72 -h ErC50 was estimated to be greater than 51.4 mg/L and the 72 -hour ErC10 was calculated to be 20 mg/L. (BASF, 2013)

Toxicity to microorganism:

The objective of this study according to OECD 209 was to determine the effect of different concentrations of the test item on sewage sludge microorganisms by measuring the respiration rate under defined conditions. The EC10 value was calculated to be greater than 1000 mg/L. (BASF, 2012)
