Description of key information

The 21-day toxicity to Daphnia Magna  NOEC and MATC of methylene bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) was determined to be greater than 247 μg/L.
As the NOEC was 0.247 mg/l at 21 days, it is considered that there is no toxicity at the limit of water solubility (water solubility; 0.247 mg/l at 20 ± 5 ºC) (Harlan Laboratories, 2009).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
247 µg/L

Additional information

In an OECD 211 study, conducted to GLP, the 21-day toxicity toDaphnia Magna NOEC and MATC of methylene bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) was determined to be greater than 247 μg/L.

As the NOEC was 0.247 mg/l at 21 days, it is considered that there is no toxicity at the limit of water solubility (water solubility; 0.247 mg/l at 20 ± 5 ºC) (Harlan Laboratories, 2009).
