Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Based on the nominal concentrations of the test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylate, the 48 h-EC50 for Daphnia magna was 83.4 mg/L (95 % confidence limits: 63.2 – 105 mg/L).
The NOEC after 48 h was 12.5 mg/L. The LOEC after 48 h was 25.0 mg/L.
Executive summary:

In the acute immobilisation test with Daphnia magna (STRAUS), the effects of the test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylate (batch number:12051006) were determined according to OECD 202 (2004) from 2014-10-21 to 2014-10-23 at Dr.U.Noack-Laboratorien, Käthe-Paulus-Str. 1, 31157 Sarstedt, Germany.

The study was conducted under semi-static conditions over a period of 48 h with 6 concentrations of the test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylatein the range of 6.25 - 200 mg/L, prepared with dilution water in a geometric series with a separation factor of 2.

The test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylateis a clear, pale yellow liquid with a water solubility of 3.35 g/L (20 °C).The tested solutions were clear throughout the exposure period.

Twenty daphnids were exposed to each concentration leveland the control.

The concentrations of the test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylate were analytically verified via HPLC-DAD at the start of the exposure intervals (0 and 24 h) and at the end of the exposure intervals (24 and 48 h) in all concentration levels and the control.

The measured concentrations of the test item at the start of the exposure intervals (0 and 24 h) were in the range of 98 to 101 % of the nominal values. At the end of the exposure intervals (24 and 48 h), the measured concentrations of the test item were in the range of 97 to 99 % of the nominal values.

The measured test item concentrations were all within ±20 % of the nominal concentrations. This indicates that the test item concentrations were successfully maintained for the duration of the test. Therefore, the effect levels given are based on the nominal concentrations of the test item S-100; 3,4-Epoxycyclohexylmethyl methacrylate.

The water quality parameters (i.e. pH-value and dissolved oxygen concentration), measured at the start (0 and 24 h) and at the end of the exposure intervals (24 and 48 h), were within the acceptable limits. The validity criteria of the test guideline were fulfilled.
