Description of key information

Additional information

Acute aquatic toxicity data is available for two species of fish, six species of invertebrates as well as an EC50 for aquatic algae. Chronic data is available for daphnia as well as a NOEC for aquatic algae. In some of these tests the substance was introduced with a solvent carrier resulting in test concentrations that exceeded the water solubility of the substance. The other tests were conducted using a recirculating column elution procedure that provided a constant saturated solution. The acute and chronic endpoints all suggest that there are no adverse effects at the limit of water solubility. Toxicity to microorganisms was evaluated with wastewater treatment plant microorganisms. In the study there were no adverse effects noted at the highest concentration tested.
