Description of key information

The test fulfilled all the acceptability criteria for determining a PNEC and gave a 21-day NOEC for reproduction of 32 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
32 mg/L

Additional information

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

An estimated value of 4.3 mg/l has been derived for chronic toxicity to invertebrates using an ECOSAR QSAR applicable to esters. The value is consistent with those obtained in the reported studies.
