Description of key information

One key study has been identified as having assessed the short-term toxicity of ethyl methyl carbonate to freshwater aquatic invertebrates – an OECD 202, GLP-compliant test using Daphnia magna and analytically verified test concentrations. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
100 mg/L

Additional information

In the acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrate study, results of the range-finding test suggested that it was appropriate to conduct a limit test in the main study. In the main study, no immobilisation was observed. A 48-h EC50 of >100 mg/l was determined and indicates that ethyl methyl carbonate is of low toxicity to freshwater aquatic invertebrates.
