Description of key information

Reliable experimental data with dihydromyrcenol are available to assess acute toxicity to daphnia magna. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
38 mg/L

Additional information

A 48h EC50 value of 38 mg/l was obtained from the key study of dihydromyrcenol toxicity to aquatic invertebrates.This value correlates well with the acute toxicity to Daphnia magna study using the read-across analogue substance linalool which reports a 48h EC50 value of 59 mg/l (Linalool, OECD SIDS report, 2002).
