Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
500 mg/L

Additional information

To determine the toxicity of Hexane-1,6-diol to aquatic invertebrates, a non-GLP static test according to EU method C.2 using Daphnia magna was performed. The calculated EC50 (48h) value in this study was >500 mg/L, related to the nominal concentration (BASF 1988).
