Description of key information

GLP-compliant guideline study available to assess acute toxicity to invertebrates.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
100 mg/L

Additional information

Under the conditions of the present study LiPF6 did not induce acute immobilisation of Daphnia magna at 100 mg/l after 48 hours of exposure (NOEC). This result is fully compatible with the reported low acute toxicity of fluoride and lithium to freshwater invertebrates (five different Daphnia 48h EC50 values from 98 to 304 mg F-/l cited in WHO EHC 227, 2002. Lithium bromide Daphnia 48h EC50 110 mg/l, Japan MoE 2001).
