Description of key information

With high probability acutely not harmful to fish.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The toxicity of N,N-dimethylacetamide to fish was investigated in a static test conducted according to DIN 38412, part 15 using Leuciscus idus as test organism (BASF AG, 1979; report no. 78/277). Based on nominal test concentrations the 96-h LC50 was found to be >500 mg/L. These data were selected as key data in terms of the chemical safety assessment.

In conclusion, N,N-dimethylacetamide (CAS 127-19-5) is concluded to be with high probability acutely not harmful to fish.
