Aquatic ecotoxicity studies demonstrates that allyl alcohol is very toxic to the aquatic environment. Acute toxicity was assessed in fish, invertebrates and algae: the most sensitive species to allyl alcohol was fish with 96h LC50 values 0.32 and 0.589 mg/l in two different species. Long-term toxicity testing was performed using invertebrates (21 -day Daphnia reproduction), the resultant NOEC = 0.919 mg/l indicates that chronic toxicity of allyl alcohol is comparable to those results observed in the acute aquatic toxicity tests.
