Description of key information

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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data used to characaterize the fish chronic toxicity of di-isodecyl phthalate ester (DIDP; CAS #68515-49-1) 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 chronic toxicity to fish at or below their maximum attainable water solubliity. The chronic fish dataset includes a result for the freshwater fish, Oryzias latipes.
