Conclusions:
The 48 h LC0 for rainbow trout (Onchorhyncus mykiss) was 200 mg/L (i.e. ca. 40 mg a.i./L), the 48 h LC50 was 450 mg/L (i.e. ca. 90 mg a.i./L) and the 48 h LC100 was 1000 mg/L (i.e. ca. 200 mg/L).
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the acute toxicity of the test substance (at ca. 50 % purity) to rainbow trout (Onchorhyncus mykiss). Groups of 8 fish were exposed at 100, 200 or 1000 mg/L for a duration of 48 h. The number of surviving fish was recorded at 24 and 48 h. No fish died at 100 and 200 mg/L while all fish died at 1000 mg/L. Under the test conditions, the 48 h LC0 was 200 mg/L (i.e. ca. 40 mg a.i./L), the 48 h LC50 was 450 mg/L (i.e. ca. 90 mg a.i./L) and the 48 h LC100 was 1000 mg/L (i.e. ca. 200 mg/L).

Description of key information

A study was conducted to determine the acute toxicity of the test substance (at ca. 20 % purity) to rainbow trout (Onchorhyncus mykiss). Groups of 8 fish were exposed at 100, 200 or 1000 mg/L for a duration of 48 h. The number of surviving fish was recorded at 24 and 48 h. No fish died in any treatment group. Under the test conditions, the 48 h LC0 was 200 mg/L (i.e. ca. 40 mg a.i./L), the 48 h LC50 was 450 mg/L (i.e. ca. 90 mg a.i./L) and the 48 h LC100 was 1000 mg/L (i.e. ca. 200 mg/L).


In a supporting study, the LC50 of the test substance (at ca. 40 % purity) was determined to be >1000 mg/L (>400 mg a.i./L) as no mortality was seen in this study.
