Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Based on nominal concentrations, experimental median lethal Concentrations of test mayterial on Zebra fish(Danio rerio)was found to be >12.5 mg/L but <25 mg/L
Executive summary:

Study was conducted to access the effect of test chemical on the growth of fish Danio rerio. Test conducted according to OECD Guideline 203 (Fish, Acute Toxicity Test). The test substance was soluble in water. Therefore, the stock solution was prepared by dissolving 1 g of the test substance in 1 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) with continuous 1 hour stirring for achieving test concentrations of 6.25mg/L,12.5mg/L,25mg/L,50mg/L,100mg/L,respectively. This test solution was then added to the remaining three liters of water for achieving test concentrations of 100 mg/L and Zebra FishDanio rerio were exposed to these concentration for 96 hours.

Bowl aquaria containing 2 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) were loaded with 8 fishes. A static procedure was used for the study and it was conducted in compliance with the OECD guideline 203. After 96 hours of exposure to test item to various nominal test concentrations, LC50 was determine to be >12.5 but <25 mg/l.100% mortality was observed in the concentration 25 mg/l . Based on the LC50, it can be consider that the chemical was toxic and can be consider to be classified as aquatic chronic 3 as per the CLP classification criteria.

Description of key information

Short term toxicity to fish:

Study was conducted to access the effect of test chemical on the growth of fish Danio rerio. Test conducted according to OECD Guideline 203 (Fish, Acute Toxicity Test).The test substance was soluble in water. Therefore, the stock solution was prepared by dissolving 1 g of the test substance in 1 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) with continuous 1 hour stirring for achieving test concentrations of 6.25mg/L,12.5mg/L,25mg/L,50mg/L,100mg/L,respectively. This test solution was then added to the remaining three liters of water for achieving test concentrations of 100 mg/L and Zebra FishDanio reriowere exposed to these concentration for 96 hours.

Bowl aquaria containing 2 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) were loaded with 8 fishes.

After 96 hours of exposure to test item to various nominal test concentrations, LC50 was determine to be >12.5 but <25 mg/l.100% mortality was observed in the concentration 25 mg/l . Based on the LC50, it can be consider that the chemical was toxic and can be consider to be classified as aquatic chronic 3 as per the CLP classification criteria.
