Additional information

According to the fugacity model (Mackay level III model) demonstrated that the components will predominantly partition to water or volatilise into air to significant amounts (>90% partition to air and water; only <10% partition to sediment and soil). Therefore, further testing on terrestrial arthropods is not considered to be necessary, as exposure to soil is low and it is not the compartment of concern. Additionaly, Oxooil LS9 did not show any toxicity to: not adopted sewerage treatment plant microorganisms (biodegradation), earthworms (acute toxicity, Section 6.3.1) or phytotoxicity to (Section 6.3.3) at a limit test concentration of 1000 mg/kg soil dw. Therefore, toxicity to terrestrial arthropods is also not expected.
