Description of key information

Additional information

The key studies available for short term toxicity to fish, aquatic invertebrates and algae report effect concentrations of >1000mg/l for the test substance potassium acetate. The reported NOEC, LC50 and EC50s were recalculated in order to report the effect concentrations based on the concentration of the acetate ion. The NOEC, LC50 and EC50s were adjusted for the molecular weight of the acetate compared to the parent molecule and also the fact that the test substance is only 50% potassium acetate. Based on the acetate ion the effect concentrations are >300.82mg/l.
