Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
5.3 mg/L

Additional information

The lowest 96 hour LC50 from a flow through study with analytical monitoring of the exposure concentrations was reported by DeGraeve et al (1982). The study design was similar to the standard OECD 203 guideline and used Oncorhynchus mykiss, a standard test species. This value was also the most conservative acute endpoint for freshwater fish identified in the EU RAR for benzene (2008).
