Additional information

The short-term toxicity potential of the substance to aquatic invertebrates was evaluated according to the OECD Guideline 202. Twenty daphnids (four groups of five) were exposed to different concentrations of the substance, ranging from 400 to 1800 mg/l for 24 hours at 20 -22 °C. The test was repeated in triplicate. After 24 h in darkness, the immobilization of the daphnids was measured. The daphnids that were unable to swim for 15 s after gentle stirring were considered immobile.

An EC50 at 24 h is experimentally determined; predicted data from ECOSAR v.1.10 show an EC50(48h) of 481.197 mg/l. No hazard is therefore identified for daphnids after 48 hours of exposure.

EC50 (24 h) = 982 ± 66 mg/l
