Description of key information

(48 h ) EC50 7 mg/L D. magna (fw)
(96 h) LC50 4.6 mg/L C. crangon (m)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A reliable 48 h EC50 value of 7 mg/L has been determined for the effects of Alcohols, C9-11-linear and branched on the immobility of the freshwater invertebrate Daphnia magna. This study has been selected as key as it is the lowest reliable value available for short-term toxicity to aquatic freshwater invertebrates.

A reliable 96 h LC50 value of 4.6 mg/L has been determined for the effects of Alcohols, C9-11-linear and branched on the mortality of the marine invertebrate Crangon crangon. This study has been selected as key as it is the only reliable value available for short-term toxicity to aquatic marine invertebrates.

Another reliable study reports a 48 h EC50 value of 8.5 mg/L with the freshwater invertebrate D. magna.
