Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
7.5 mg/L

Additional information

As no data is available on the reaction mass of m-Cresol and p-Cresol, the assessment is based on data available on individual constituents. The most severe toxicity value was obtained with a freshwater fish species (Oncorhynchus mykiss) exposed for 96 hours to p-Cresol: 96h-LC50 = 7.5 mg/L. As a worst-case, this value is assigned to the reaction mass for the assessment.
