Description of key information

Several studies on acute toxicity to fish have been reported. The lowest 96-hour LC50 value of 4,630 mg/L is from a study with fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) conducted under EPA guideline. Furthermore, there are two studies with bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) from Cairns and Scheier (1959) and Trama (1954) and a study with mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) from Wallen et al. (1957) in which 96-hour LC50¬ values between 9500 and 13400 mg/L were determined.
