Description of key information

Waterflea (D. magna): 48-h EC50 = 32 mg/L (OECD 202; NITE, 2010)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water invertebrates

Fresh water invertebrates
Effect concentration:
32 mg/L

Additional information

The acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrates was determined in a 48-h acute toxicity test. The EC50 was 32 mg/L (measured).

Hence, valeraldehyde is acutely harmful to aquatic invertebrates.
