short-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
14 Feb - 19 Mar 2012

Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: GLP guideline study
according to guideline
OECD Guideline 202 (Daphnia sp. Acute Immobilisation Test)
GLP compliance:
Analytical monitoring:
Details on sampling:
- Concentrations: all test concentrations (new test solution and old test solution prior to renewal)
- Sampling method: Collected in the middle layer of the vessel
Details on test solutions:
PREPARATION AND APPLICATION OF TEST SOLUTION (especially for difficult test substances)
- Method: Stock solution I was prepared by dissolving 100 mg test substance in tetrahydrofuran to a final volume of 10 mL. Stock solution II was obtained by taking 1000 µL of stock solution I and adding tetrahydrofuran to a final volume of 10 mL. Stock solution III was prepared individually for each test concentration. 80, 140, 250, 450 and 800 µL, respectively, of stock solution II was taken, and tetrahydrofuran was added to a volume of 10 mL. Between all dilution steps, the solution was mixed by inversion. For the test concentrations, 0.11 mL of the stock solution III was taken and dilution water was added to a final volume of 1.1 L.

Nominal / measured:

Basis for effect:
Details on results:
- At the highest concentration two immobile daphnids were observed after 48 h. At the other concentrations or in the controls, no immobility occurred.
Results with reference substance (positive control):
- EC50 (48h) = 0.75 mg/L (95% confidence limits: 0.67 - 1.00 mg/L)
Exposure period: 4 - 6 Jan 2012

Description of key information

Up to the highest attainable concentration no EC50 could be reached.

48h-EC50 > 0.00371 mg/L (OECD 202, Daphnia magna)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study is available on the short-term toxicity of 3,3,4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,8-tridecafluorooctyl 2-chloropropenoic acid ester (CAS 96383-55-0) to aquatic invertebrates. The study was conducted according to the OECD guideline 202 and GLP (Matsumoto, 2012). As the test substance is poorly soluble in water, tetrahydrofuran was used as a solvent for the preparation of the test solutions. The test organism Daphnia magna was exposed under semi-static conditions to nominal test concentrations of 0.00080, 0.0014, 0.0025, 0.0045 and 0.0080 mg/L for 48 hours. At the end of the exposure period, 10% immobilization was observed only at the highest test concentration. The EC50 (48h) was therefore determined to be above the highest test concentration, corresponding to a measured value of > 0.00371 mg/L.
