short-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
September 06-09, 2004
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: The study has been performed according to ISO guidelines and according to GLP principles.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
ISO 14669 (1998): Water Quality - Determination of acute
lethal toxicity to marine copepods (Copepoda, Crustacea).

OECD 2000: Guidance Document on aquatic toxicity testing of
difficult substances and mixtures. OECD Environmental Health
and Safety Publications Series on Testing and Assessment
No. 23. ENV/JM/MONO(2000)6.

ISO 8245: Water Quality - Guidelines for the determination
of total organic carbon (TOC) and dissolved organic carbon
GLP compliance:
Analytical monitoring:
Details on test solutions:
Identity and concentration of auxiliary solvent for dispersal: Species: the marine crustacean Acartia tonsa.

Test medium: natural seawater (salinity adjusted by
distilled water to 32 S).

Reference substance: 3,5-dichlorophenol

Separate WAF's were prepared for 5 loading rates (101-180-
321-561-1000 mg/l) in the dark at 21°C. After 23 h WAF's
were filtered through Wathman GF/C glass fibre filters to
remove non-settling suspended material.

Remarks on result:
other: WAF loading was 1000 mg/l

TOC analysis:

control seawater: 1.0 mg TOC/l

101 mg/L WAF: 4.8 mg TOC/l

1000 mg/l WAF: 34.8 mg TOC/l

The results show that a portion of the test substance
partitioned to the water phase as dissolved organic matter.
Assuming that the carbon content of the test substance is
70% by weight, approximately 5% of the added substance was
present in the WAF's.

The acute lethality was less than 10% at loading rates up to
1000 mg/l.

Validity criteria fulfilled:
The 48 hour EC50 of Radiagreen EBL (Pentaerythritol mono oleate base Polyol) is estimated as greater than 1000 mg/l. The highest no-observed (lethal) effect concentration (NOEC) was estimated as 1000 mg/l.

Description of key information

Additional information

The acute toxicity of Radiagreen EBL (Radia 7853) to the marine crustacean Acartia tonsa has been investigated. The test was performed according to ISO 14669: Determination of acute lethal toxicity to marine copepods (Copepoda, Crustacea). The test was performed on water accommodated fractions (WAF) of the test substance. The loading rates were 100 – 1000 mg/l. The Acartia tonsa were exposed for 48 hours at 20 ±1 °C. Mortality was recorded after 24 and 48 hours. The acute lethality of the substance on the marine copepod Acratia tonsa was less than 10% at loading rates up to 1000 mg/l in acoomodated fractions. Based on analysis of TOC, this results in a 48 -h EC50 of > 34.8 mg/l, and therefore also beyond the water solubility limit.
