Additional information

The acute toxicity of 2 -[2 -(3 -aminopropoxy)ethoxy]ethanol (CAS 112-33-4) to fish was studied in a static test according to OECD guideline 203. The test species was Danio rerio (reported as Brachydanio rerio). The test item concentrations were analytically verified. The 96 -h LC50 was determined to be 681 mg/L (measured) based on not pH-adjusted test solutions. The highest test concentration of 1000 mg/L caused no mortality after pH-adjustment while all fish were dead after 24 h without pH adjustment (BASF AG, 1995; report no. 17F0455/915146). It can be concluded that the toxic effect is mainly caused by the pH shift induced by the test substance.

The test substance is with high probability acutely not harmful to fish.
