Executive summary:

Data available for the structurally similar read across chemicals has been reviewed to determine the short term toxicity of fish of the test chemical .The studies are as mentioned below:

For the structurally similar read across substance , short term toxicity test was performed to evaluate the effect of test material on fish Ciprinus carpio.The test animals were fed with yeast in a 224 (diameter)46 (height)-cm circular plastic pool. Before the experiment, the test organisms were acclimatized in aquaria for 2 weeks under conditions similar to those under which the tests were performed.

 Four carp 2 to 6 cm in size, were introduced to each 10-L beaker containing 5 L of different concentrations of test chemical. Five different concentrations were 10, 50, 100, 200, and 500 mg/l.48 h of incubation. Sublethal concentration (LC50) values were calculated by the trimmed Spearman}Karber method.The effect concentration (LC50)of test material on Ciprinus carpio after 48 h was observed to be 0.045 mg/l.

In another study for structurally similar read across substance,short term toxicity test was performed to evaluate the effect of test material on fish Ciprinus carpio. The test animals were fed with yeast in a 224 (diameter)46 (height)-cm circular plastic pool. Before the experiment, the test organisms were acclimatized in aquaria for 2 weeks under conditions similar to those under which the tests were performed. Four carp 2 to 6 cm in size, were introduced to each 10-L beaker containing 5 L of different concentrations of test chemical. Five different concentrations were 10, 50, 100, 200, and 500 mg/l. After 48 h of incubation Sublethal concentration (LC50) values were calculated by the trimmed Spearman} Karber method.The effect concentration (LC50) of test material on Ciprinus carpio after 48 h was observed to be 0.022 mg/l.

Based on the LC50 value, chemical consider to be toxic and classified as aquatic acute 1/ chronic 1 as per the CLP classification criteria.
