Description of key information

The objective of this study was to assess the acute toxicity of methyl undec-10-enoate dispersed in fresh water, to Oncorhynchus mykiss, in a 96-hour semi-static test complying with OECD Guideline (No. 203, 17th July 1992) and Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (C.1, 31st July 1992). Based on geometric mean of measured concentrations, LC50 = 0.756 mg/L

Additional information

The objective of this study was to assess the acute toxicity of methyl undec-10-enoate dispersed in fresh water, to Oncorhynchus mykiss, in a 96-hour semi-static test complying with OECD Guideline (No. 203, 17th July 1992) and Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (C.1, 31st July 1992). The criterion measured is the LC50 (Median Lethal Concentration), a statistically derived concentration of the test item which is expected to cause death in 50% of the animals.

Finally, as a result, under the given experimental conditions, the 96-hour LC50 of methyl undec-10-enoate in a semi-static test system was 0.756 mg/L based on geometric mean of measured concentrations, for Oncorhynchus mykiss.
