Description of key information

The calculated freshwater invertebrate (Daphnia magna) 48-hour EC50 for 1,3-butadiene is 33 mg/l

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Two QSAR models have been used to give an indication of the toxicity of 1,3-butadiene to Daphnia. The calculated 48 hour EC50 values are 33mg/l from the equation recommended in the TGD (Verhaar et al, 1995) and 24mg/l from ECOSAR (Nabholz and Mayo-Bean, 2009). Values from the TGD recommended equation will be used for consistency with the EU RAR for 1,3-butadiene.
