Description of key information

Two acute aquatic studies are available.

A study was performed to assess the acute toxicity of the test item to Daphnia magna. The method followed was designed to be compatible with the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals (April 2004) No 202, "Daphnia sp., Acute Immobilisation Test" under GLP.

Exposure of Daphnia magna the test item gave EC50values based on the nominal test concentrations of greater than100% v/v saturated solution. The NOEC was determined to be100% v/v saturated solution.

This study showed that there were no toxic effects at saturation.

A study was performed to assess the effect of the test item on the growth of the green alga Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata, according to the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals (2006) No 201, "Freshwater Alga and Cyanobacteria, Growth Inhibition Test" under GLP.

Exposure of Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata to the test item gave EC50values based on the nominal test concentrations of greater than100% v/v saturated solution. The NOEC was determined to be100% v/v saturated solution.

This study showed that there were no toxic effects at saturation.
