Description of key information

Long-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 chronic toxicity to invertebrates at or below its maximum attainable water solubility.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The data used to characaterize the invertebrate chronic 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 chronic toxicity to invertebrates at or below their maximum attainable water solubliity. The acute invertebrate dataset includes results for one species, Daphnia magna
