Description of key information

Short-term toxicity to fish: Key study: The 96h-LC50 for Sodium acetate was > 100 mg/L with Brachydanio rerio (new name: Danio rerio) (basis for effect: mortality). Test method was according to OECD 203.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
100 mg/L

Additional information

Key study: Experimental results: Test method was according to OECD 203 and EU guideline C.1. The LC 50 was greater than 100 mg/L after 96 hours with Brachydanio rerio (basis for effect: mortality).

Supporting information:

Read-across from experimental results obtained with the category analogue Potassium acetate:

Test method was according to OECD 203. The measured 96-hour-LC50value for the test substance was found to be > 496.35 mg/L.

Read-across approach is applied, based on molecular weights, and the (96 h) LC 50 for Sodium acetate is calculated to be > 414.87 mg/L.
