NOEC (21 d)= 0.0814 mg/L (measured mean concentration) for Daphnia magna (OECD 211)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study investigating the chronic toxicity of methyl laurate(CAS No. 111-82-0) to aquatic invertebrates is available (Ministry of Environment, Government of Japan, 2006). The test was conducted according to OECD 211, under GLP conditions. Daphnids were exposed to the test substance for 21 days within a flow-through water regime, at nominal concentrations ranging between 0.0625 and 1 mg/L (0.009 to 0.409 mg/L, measured concentrations). After the exposure period, significant effects in mortality and reproduction were observed at the highest concentrations tested, leading to a NOEC (21 d) of 0.0814 mg/L (measured mean concentration).
