Description of key information

The test fulfilled the criteria for acceptability for determining a PNEC, giving a 48-h EC50 value of 131 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
131 mg/L

Additional information

There were two acute invertebrate tests with Daphnia magna (Griebenow, 1998 and Meeks, 1985c). One test fulfilled the criteria for acceptability for determining a PNEC, giving a 48-h EC50 value of 131 mg/l.

An estimated value of 63 mg/l has been derived for acute (48-hour LC50) toxicity to invertebrates using an ECOSAR QSAR applicable to esters. The value is consistent with those obtained in the reported studies.
