Description of key information

The 48 h LC50 of Ethytriglycol methacrylate in freshwater fish (Leuciscus idus (Golden orfe)) was 406 mg/L according to DIN 38412 part 15, static conditions (Hüls AG, 1987 for Evonik Röhm) . 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
406 mg/L

Additional information

One acute freshwater study in fish is available for Ethyltriglycol methacrylate, which is considered reliable with restriction (Klimisch score 2).

In a 48-h acute toxicity study, Leuciscus idus (Golden orfe) were exposed to Ethyltriglycol methacrylate

under static conditions according to DIN 38412 part 15 (similar to OECD 203). The 48-h LC50 was 406 mg/L (95% CL (confidence limit): 230 - 715 mg/L, based on mortality). The 48 -h NOEC was 300 mg/L (based on mortality) (Hüls AG, 1987 for
Evonik Röhm). While shorter in exposure duration than a standard fish toxicity study the available information indicated that there is no significant toxicity to fish and a new 96 h test is not justified because no relevant toxicity is expected.
