Description of key information

A study was performed to assess the acute toxicity of Salicynalva to Daphnia magna. The study was conducted in accordance with EU Method C2 and OECD TG 202. Groups of twenty, first instar Daphnia (less than 24 hours old) were exposed for 48 hours to seven concentrations of Salicynalva dissolved in Elendt M7 medium. The incidence of immobilisation was recorded for each test and control group at 24 hours and at 48 hours. The 48h EC50 for Salicynalva was 1.6 mg/L, expressed in terms of mean measured concentration. Measured concentrations ranged from 98 - 127% of nominal at 0 hours and 86 - 121% of nominal at 48 hours.
