Acute toxic for aquatic invertebrates: EC50 (48 h) = 5.8 mg/L
Acute toxicity towards invertebrates was tested with the
cladocerans Daphnia magna and Daphnia pulex. One 24 h-EC50 is available
(Bringmann & Kuehn, 1982), but should only be used as additional
information since 48 h-values are available from studies according to
OECD guideline 202 (Janssen & Persoone, 1993; Tisler & Zagorc-Koncan,
Further studies using a number of invertebrate species from a wide
array of taxa are reported. LC50s range from 0.42 mg/L to > 100 mg/L In
the light of new results (Cooney and Bourgoin 2001 mentioned by
Hohreiter and Rigg, 2001) the validity of the lowest value reported for
ostracods (Cypridopsis sp.) has recently been questioned (OECD 2004).
Thus, the lowest reliable 48h-EC50 for invertebrates is 5.8 mg/L (D.
pulex, Tisler and Zagorc-Koncan 1997).
