Additional information

The acute toxicity of the substance to zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio) was determined in a 96-hour static test according to the EU Commission Directive 92/69/EEC, Part C.1 (1992), and the OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 203, (1992). The nominal test item concentrations tested were 4.6, 10, 22, 46, and 100 mg/L, and in parallel a control.

The analytically determined test item concentrations in the test media varied in the range from 89 to 99 % of the nominal values. The substance was stable under the conditions of the test during the test period of 96 hours. Therefore, all reported biological results are related to the nominal concentrations of the test item.

The biological test results after 96 hours test duration are:

- 96-hour LC50: 93 mg/L (95% confidence interval not calculable)

- 96-hour LC0: 46 mg/L

- 96-hour LC100: >100 mg/L

- 96-hour NOEC: 22 mg/L

- 96-hour LOEC: 46 mg/L
