Description of key information

LC50 (96hr)  > 200 mg/L. by measurement, 5358mg/l by QSAR.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a guideline (OECD 203) and GLP acute fish toxicity study (96 -hr; flow-through), exposure of zebra fish to dipropylene glycol monoethyl ether at concentrations up to 200 mg/L did not cause lethality. Based on these findings the acute LCLo for DPGEE is considered to be greater than 200 mg/L.

US EPA ECOSAR software (v0.99h) estimates the 96 -hr fish LC50 to be 5358mg/l for dipropylene glycol monoethyl ether.
