Description of key information

Due to its high volatility and limited water solubility, aquatic toxicity of PPVE was examined in limit tests conducted in closed test chambers. Analytically determined concentrations were considered to be the maximum solubility in the media tested. The 50% effect level was not attained in any of the studies (see table below). A biologically-relevant 10% effect level was not attained in the algae study.
