Description of key information

Acute harmful for fish.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

For the assessment of the acute toxicity to fish of the test substance three studies are reported using three different fresh water species. The results indicates that 2-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate is acute harmful to fish. For instance, in a GLP OECD guideline study with Oryzias latipes as test organism a LC50 (96 h) of 19.1 mg/L was determined using a semi-static test system. In contrast, no acute toxicity was determined in a GLP DIN 38 412 L15 study with Leuciscus idus (LC50 (96 h) = 331 – 592 mg/L). Moreover, no acute toxicity was demonstrated after 72 h of exposure to goldfish (LC50 = 139.5 mg/L).
