Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The toxicity (EC0, EC50, and EC100) of phenethyl alcohol to the invertebrate Daphnia magna was assessed. The test duration was 24 and 48 hours. The EC50 was determined to be 329.88 mg/L/24h and 287.17 mg/L/24h respectively. The EC100 was determined to be 500 mg/L for both durations. The EC0 was 250mg/L/24h and 125 mg/L/48h.
