Conclusion on classification

The L(E)C50 values from the acute fish, acute Daphnia and algal inhibition studies are all limit values based on solubility. Effects seen in the acute Daphnia toxicity study were attributed to physical effects, rather than the inherent toxicity of the substance itself. The substance is “readily biodegradable” but has log Pow > 4. The chronic Daphnia NOEC is 0.77 mg/L. Overall it is concluded that the substance need not be classified for environmental effects.
