Description of key information

Two O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 203 "Fish Acute Toxicity Tests" were conducted with 1,6-Hexanediol diglycidylether under the GLP regulations.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
30 mg/L

Additional information

The estimated 96 hr LC50 value for 1,6 -Hexanediol diglycidylether to rainbow trout under semi-static treatment conditions was 30 mg/L (25 - 36 mg/L 95% Confidence Limits). In a similar static exposure study the estimated 96 hr LC50 value for rainbow trout was reported to be between 17.1 and 30.9 mg/L.
