Description of key information

An assessment of the solid-phase (sediment) short-term toxicity (10-day LC50) of the test item was made using the sediment-dwelling amphipod, Corophium volutator (Pallas). The following result, expressed as mg test item (nominal) per kg dry sediment weight, was obtained:

10-day LC50: 2817 mg kg-1 (95% c.i. 1731 - 4521)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 or LC50 for marine water sediment:
2 817 mg/kg sediment dw
