Sampling and analysis

Analytical monitoring:
yes

Test solutions

Vehicle:
no
Details on test solutions:
The test concentrations were freshly prepared every 48 hours. The preparation was carried out separately for each test vessel . All flasks and vessels needed were rinsed with test solution before use. The test substance was weighed into a flask, an alliquot of the test water was added and mixed with the test substance by shaking thoroughly. The mixture was poured into the test vessel, the flask was refilled with test water and poured into the test vessel to ensure complete transfer of test substance into the test vessel. This procedure was repeated until a final volume of 10 L was achieved.
