Additional information

Short term aquatic toxicity data are available on all 3 trophic levels. These data indicate that aquatic invertebrates (Daphnia magna) and algae (Desmodesmus Subspicatus) are equally the most sensitive species (EC50 (48 h) = 1.5 mg/l; EbC50 (72 h) = 1.5 mg/l) and fish are least sensitive (EC50 (96 h) >10 mg/l).

Long term aquatic toxicity data are available for both of the most sensitive trophic levels of aquatic invertebrates (Daphnia magna) and algae (Desmodesmus Subspicatus) (NOEC (21 d) = 0.47 mg/l; NOEC (72 h) = 0.625 mg/l), respectively. In the long term (21-day) aquatic invertebrate study (Daphnia magna) conducted under GLP conditions, Molyvan 855 was tested and shown to rapidly degrade and coco amides (CAS 68603-42-9) be formed. It has been hypothesised that the aquatic toxicity of Molyvan 855 may be attributed to the degradate, coco amides
