Details on results:
Concentration of test item in test solution:
The measured concentrations of the test item in the test solution were 0.00461 and 0.00611 mg/L at the preparation (start of the exposure and after the renewal), and 0.00307 and 0.00406 mg/L (compared to the concentration at the preparation: 66.7 and 66.4 %) at 24 hours after (before the renewal and end of the exposure).

Any other information on results incl. tables

Calculating method of EC50:

The EC50 value was estimated as "> the test concentration" since no less than 50 % of immobility was not observed in the present exposure level. The results of the study were estimated by geometric mean of the measured concentrations as the test concentration.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Because no adverse effect was observed during the exposure period, it was decided that the test item has no potential for acute effect to test organisms at around the solubility of the test item in dilution water.
Executive summary:

Because no adverse effect was observed during the exposure period, it was decided that the test item has no potential for acute effect to test organisms at around the solubility of the test item in dilution water.
