Description of key information

Daphnia magna: 21 day NOEC (reproduction)>500mg/l
Daphnia magna: Chv = 568mg/l (protocol: QSAR)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
500 mg/L

Additional information

A single chronic study is available. This is only reported in basic detail, but is a guideline study in the prefered species and is relatively recent so is considered reliable. The study shows a NOEC greater than the maximum value tested of 500mg/l. QSAR predictions confirm that methoxyethanol is low toxicity to invertebrates at chronic levels of exposure. The measured value is preferred as the key parameter over the model derived data.
