Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Based on the test results of the 96-hour LC50 of Benzophenone methacrylate for Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was determined to be 14.0 mg test item/L based on initial loading rates, corresponding to 0.399 mg test item/L based on geometric mean measured concentrations. Therefore Benzophenone methacrylate is classified into Category Acute Toxic 1, H400.
