Additional information

A key study was conducted according to OECD 202 and GLP with dipropylamine (CAS 142-84-7). The test concentrations were analytically verified and deviated not more than 20% from the nominal test concentrations. Therefore, effect values were related to the nominal concentrations. A 48 -h EC50 was determined to be >200 mg/L (BASF, 2022).


Furthermore, the effects of dipropylamine on the acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrates were investigated additionally in a non GLP-study according to EU Method C.2, under semi-static conditions. As test organism Daphnia magna was used. The 48 -h EC50 value was determined to be 73.3 mg/L (nominal, BASF AG, 1988. report no.: 1/0010/2/88-0010/88).

The test concentrations were not analytically verified, therefore, it is not considered for the environmental risk assessment as a key study.


In conclusion, dipropylamine is acutely not harmful to aquatic invertebrates.
