Additional information

Data on the acute toxicity are available for three trophic levels of the aquatic environment.

In a guideline study (OECD 203) using Brachydanio rerio, a LC50 > 58 mg/l based on analytically determined test concentrations was detected (Ciba-Geigy Ltd. (1990)).

A water accommodated fraction using 100 mg/l loading rate was tested in an OECD 202 study with Daphnia magna. No effect in the range of the water solubility of the test substance was observed at test termination after 48 hours (RCC Ltd. (2002)).

In a study according to directive 92/69/EWG, C.3 EEC, the toxicity of the substance to Scenedesmus subspicatus was investigated. An ErC50 (72 h): > 2 mg/L was derived (Ciba-Geigy Ltd. (1995)).

A long-term study in Daphnia was initiated to investigate the effect of the registration item on reproduction (BASF 2015). The NOELR observed in this study was >= 10 mg/L (nominal), i.e. no adverse effects were observed in the range of water solubility of the test substance.
