Description of key information

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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data used to characterize the invertebrate acute 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 acute toxicity to invertebrates at or below their maximum attainable water solubliity. The acute invertebrate dataset includes several results for three species, Daphnia magna, Paratanytarsus parthenogenetica, and Mysidopsis bahia (new name: Americamysis bahia).
