Description of key information

2,3 -Epoxypropyl neodecanoate was evaluated for acute aquatic toxicity in an O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 202, "Daphnia sp., Acute Immobilisation Test and Reproduction Test". 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50/LC50 for freshwater invertebrates:
4.8 mg/L

Additional information

Complete immobilisation of the Daphnids was observed at concentrations of 2,3 -epoxy propyl neodecanoate of 20 mg/L and higher. The 24 hr and 48 hr EC50 values for D. magna were calculated to be 10 mg/L and 4.8 mg/L respectively. For the 48 hr EC50 value of 4.8 mg/L, the 95% confidence limits were 4.0—5.7 mg /L.
