Description of key information

The freshwater endpoint represents the lowest toxicity value obtained for Daphnia magna (Kuhn et al., 1988, 1989).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
1 mg/L

Additional information

Endpoints derived for p-Cresol have been used for this mixed xylenol assessment. Since there are structural and physical chemical similarities between the cresols and the other molecules within the mixed xylenol grouping it is acceptable to assume that their ecotoxicological profiles would be similar.
