Description of key information

No key study for fish is available for guaiacol, but a weight of evidence approach can be applied.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No reliable study is available on guaiacol for fish: two data are from secondary literature (primary data not available) and gave on Perca sp. LC50 48H = 70 - 80 mg/l (Little, 1970) and LC50 96H = 44 mg/l (unknown species, Gilron et al., 1999). These data can however be used in a weight of evidence approach. All these data indicate that guaiacol can be considered as harmful for fish.
