Description of key information

There are two studies that can both be used to provide the EC50 for toxicity against aquatic invertebrates. Both studies assessed the acute toxicity of Benzenediamine, ar-methyl-, polymer with 2-methyloxirane and oxirane according to OECD 202 and EU method C.2 ' acute toxicity for Daphnia' (2008). In both studies no toxic effects against D. magna was observed during 48 hours exposure at a limit test concentration of 100 mg/L (Currenta, 2009 and BASF, 2009). Thus, the EC50 of Benzenediamine, ar-methyl-, polymer with 2-methyloxirane and oxirane is > 100 mg/L.
