Description of key information

Key value determined using OECD method 203
96h LC50 >100 mg/l

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Fresh water fish
Effect concentration:
100 mg/L

Additional information

Data are available from three studies summarised as

Ciba-Geigy Ltd. 96hr EC50 >100 mg/l

NITE 48hr EC50 >100mg/l

Shell Chemie 96hr LC0 >1.2mg/l

The substance is highly insoluble in water and all data demonstrate a lack of effects above the limit of solubility. While the data from NITE demonstrate a lack of effects the experiment has been ended before the 96 hour exposure period has elapsed and hence the data from Ciba Geigy are included for CSA.
