Description of key information

Additional information

The substance has been shown to possess a 2-day LC50 in terrestrial arthropods of 11.8 g/L in diet and a 3-day IC50 (germination) in terrestrial plants of 2104 mg/kg. This substance is not considered to be toxic to terrestrial arthropods. The study on terrestrial plants did not investigate any monocotyledon species and with only one dicotyledon species reported, it is difficult to establish an effect level that will be representative of the effects of 2-propanol on seedling emergence of higher plants. Additionally, no studies were available for soil macroorganisms or to birds.

Hazard to terrestrial organisms have been assessed by applying the equilibrium partitioning method to aquatic data. Long term terrestrial toxicity testing is not proposed by the registrant as the substance is readily biodegradable and does not have a high potential to adsorb to soil
