1,4-bis[(ethenyloxy)methyl]cyclohexane is acutely toxic to aquatic invertebrates.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
1.41 mg/L

Additional information

In a static GLP-study with the Daphnia magna as test species according to a EU method C.2, the toxicity of 1,4-bis[(ethenyloxy)methyl]cyclohexane was studied (BASF 1998). After 48 hours of exposure an EC50 of 1.41 mg/l was found, related to the measured concentration (arithmetic mean).
