Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
1.54 mg/L

Additional information

To determine the toxicity of 1,4-bis[(ethenyloxy)methyl]cyclohexane to fish, a semi-static test following the method laid down OECD guideline 203 using Salmo gairdneri as test species was performed (GAF Industries Inc 1990). The calculated LC50 (96h) value in this study was 1.54 mg/l related to the measured concentration.
