Additional information

To determine the toxicity of 2-(2-aminoethoxy)ethanol to aquatic invertebrates, a static non-GLP study following the method laid down in Directive 79/831/EEC, method C.2 using Daphnia magna was performed. The calculated EC50 (48h) value in this study was >500 mg/L, related to the nominal concentration and for a neutralized sample (BASF SE 1990).

In a test on the marine organism Acartia tonsa according to ISO TC 147/SC5/WG2 by Huntingdon in 1999, the EC50 after 48 hours of exposure was 210 mg/L.
