Description of key information

Additional information

Chronic toxicity data for 3-butyn-1-ol are not available. Tetrahymena pyriformis population growth impairment endpoint was used as a surrogate for fish lethality. Protozoa Tetrahymena pyriformis IGC50 (48 h) = 4,85E+03 mg/L. Available acute toxicity data on fish are all well above 1 mg/L (36 mg/L), indicating that acute toxicity to fish is not expected. However, no data on acute toxicity are available for crustacea and for algae or other aquatic plants. The substance may be degradable (i.e. specific biodegradation data are not available), log Kow is below 4 (0.07, as estimated by EPI suite). Overall, available information is inconclusive for the classification of the substance for acute and chronic aquatic toxicity.
