EU Risk Assessment (2003):

The reported EC50 values range between 127 mg/kg (Neuhauser et al., 1986) and 290 mg/kg (Ballhorn et al., 1984).

 

The toxicity to earthworms was studied using the OECD artificial soil test. In the same study, contact tests were performed in which LC50 values of 23 -27µg/cm2 were observed (Neuhauser et al., 1986). In a study on Eisenia foetida over 14 days, an EC50 was observed at 290 mg/kg soil dry weight. The EC0 was 100 mg/kg. The substance was applied dissolved in acetone and nominal concentrations used in the effect estimations (Ballhorn et al., 1984).
