Description of key information

No acute daphnia study data are available. The acute toxicity to daphnia was predicted using the Petrotox model and the LL50 was estimated at > 1000 mg/L.

In a 'read across' acute daphnia study with hydrodesulphurised kerosine. The EL50 was determined to be in the range 40-89 mg/l based on immobilisation

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water invertebrates

Fresh water invertebrates
Effect concentration:
40 mg/L

Additional information

A sample of hydrodesulphurised kerosine was tested in a static 48 -hour acute daphnid (Daphnia magna) test (OECD 202; KS = 1).

The EL50 was in the range 40 - 89 mg/L The No Observed Effect Loading (NOEL) rate was 40 mg/L determined by immobilisation.
