Description of key information

LC50 (96 hours): 1.4 mg/L

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
1.4 mg/L
LC50 for marine water fish:
0.22 mg/L

Additional information

Acute toxicity to a number of freshwater species has been determined over a 96 hour period. The LC50 in rainbow trout was in excess of 1.4 mg/L, in fathead minnow was in excess of 1.3 mg/L and in bluegill was in excess of 0.73 mg/L. These values represent the highest concentrations examined which was at or in excess of the water solubility of the subsance.

Acute toxicity to a marine species, sheepshead minnow, has also been determined. The 96 hour LC50 was in excess of 0.22 mg/L, the highest concentration investigated which was at or in excess of the water solubility of the substance
