Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
other: as mentioned below
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Study was conducted to access the effect of test chemical on the mortality of fish Danio rerio. Test conducted according to OECD Guideline 203 (Fish, Acute Toxicity Test).
GLP compliance:
no
Analytical monitoring:
no
Vehicle:
no
Details on test solutions:
The test substance was soluble in water. Therefore, the test solution was prepared by dissolving 450 mg of the test substance in 4.5 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) with 1 hr stirring for achieving test concentrations of 100mg/L ,respectively.
Test organisms (species):
Danio rerio (previous name: Brachydanio rerio)

Executive summary:

Data available for the structurally and functionally similar read across chemicals has been reviewed to determine the short term toxicity of fish of the test chemical .The studies are as mentioned below:

Study was conducted to assess the effect of test chemical on the mortality of fish Danio rerio. Test conducted according to OECD Guideline 203 (Fish, Acute Toxicity Test). The test substance was soluble in water. Therefore, the test solution was prepared by dissolving 450 mg of the test substance in 4.5 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) with 1 hr stirring for achieving test concentrations of 100mg/L ,respectively. Bowl aquaria containing 2 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) were loaded with 8 fishes. A static procedure was used for the study and it was conducted in compliance with the OECD guideline 203. After 96 hours of exposure to test item to nominal test concentrations, LC50 was determine to be >100 mg/l . Based on the LC50, it can be consider that the chemical was not toxic and can be consider to be not classified as per the CLP classification criteria.
