Additional information

The acute toxicity of 3 -Mercaptopropionic acid towards Daphnia magna was determined by Lebertz (2000) in a laboratory study according to OECD Guideline 202. Based on geometric mean measured test item concentrations of 0 h and 48 h test media samples, the 48 h EC0, EC50, and EC100

values for the mobility of the test substance to Daphnia magna were determined to be 2.4, 9, and 35 mg/L, respectively.
