Description of key information

Short-term toxicity to fish:
Results of several studies with di-isodecyl phthalate ester (DIDP; CAS #68515-49-1) show that DIDP will not produce acute toxicity to fish at or below its maximum attainable water solubility.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data used to characterize the fish acute toxicity of di-isodecyl phthalate ester (DIDP; CAS #68515-49-1) ester are consistent with the data for several high molecular weight phthalate diesters summarized by Staples et al. (1997). These data show that high molecular weight phthalate diesters do not produce acute toxicity to fish at or below their maximum attainable water solublity. The acute fish dataset includes results for various species of freshwater fish including Oncorhynchus mykiss, Pimephales promelas, and Lepomis macrochirus, and a marine fish, Cyprinodon variegatus.
