Description of key information

In a 14-day acute toxicity study earthworms (Eisenia foetida) were exposed to Oxooil LS 13. The resulting 14-day LC50 value was >1000 mg/kg dw.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

In a 14-day acute toxicity study, earthworms (Eisenia foetida) were exposed to Oxooil LS 13 at the following nominal concentrations:

0, 0 (solvent control) and 1000 mg/kg dw (artificial soil). The resulting 14-day LC50 value was >1000 mg/kg dw. The present toxicity study is classified as reliable with restrictions according to the OECD guideline Nr. 207, since Oxooil LS 13 appears to be volatile (see IUCLID point 6.1.7), and any potential loss of the test substance during application to the soil was not determined.
