Additional information

The LC50 for propylene glycol phenyl ether was 280mg/L in Fathead minnow and between 215 and 464 mg/L in the Golden orfe. The results of both tests are consistent. Nevertheless, the range of test concentrations chosen for the Fathead minnow test allowed a more accurate determination of the LC50, hence the latter is selected as a key study for this endpoint.
