Additional information

Freshwater invertebrates

In the study performed according to the OECD Guideline 202 (April 13, 2004) the 48h acute toxicity of styrene oxide to Daphnia magna was studied under semi-static conditions. Daphnids were exposed to control, reference control, and test substance for 24 and 48 hours. Initial concentrations at 10, 22, 46 and 100 % of the WSF slightly decreased during the renewal periods (58-89 % of initial). Given these results, effect parameters were based on the average exposure concentrations that were calculated to be 4.3, 11, 20 and 47 mg/L.

Immobilization was observed at test termination. The 48h-EC50 of styrene oxide was 13 mg/L based on average exposure concentrations (95 % confidence interval between 12 and 16 mg/L).
