Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Based on nominal concentrations, experimental median lethal Concentrations [LC-50 (96 h)] for test substance on Zebra Fish Danio rerio was determine to be > 50 mg/L but < 100 mg/L.
Executive summary:

Study was conducted to assess the effect of test chemical on the mortality of fish Danio rerio. Test conducted according to OECD Guideline 203 (Fish, Acute Toxicity Test). The test substance was soluble in water. Therefore, the test solution was prepared by dissolving 1 gm of the test substance in 1 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) with 1 hour continuous stirring for achieving test concentrations of 6.25 mg/L,12.5mg/L,25mg/L,50mg/L and 100mg/L, respectively .

Bowl aquaria containing 2 liters of potable water (passed through reverse osmosis system) were loaded with 8 fishes. A static procedure was used for the study and it was conducted in compliance with the OECD guideline 203. After 96 hours of exposure to test item to various nominal test concentrations, LC50 was determine to be > 50 mg/L but < 100 mg/L.   . Based on the LC50, it can be consider that the chemical was toxic and can be consider to be classified aq aquatic chronic 3 as per the CLP classification criteria.
