Description of key information

The key study was conducted in year 1997 according to OECD Guideline 203 and EEC/Annex V C.1. and GLP.
The acute toxicity of the test substance to the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) was determined in a 96-hour, static, aquatic effects limit test. Analyzed exposure concentration values were determined by gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC/FID). The 96-hour LC50 value for Pimephales promelas was estimated to be > 977.74 mg/L. The 96- hour No-Observed-Effect Concentration (NOEC) value for fathead minnows was determined to be 977.74 mg/L. The minnows in the diluent water controls exhibited normal behavior and appearance throughout the test.
A supporting toxicity to fish study was conducted in year 1981 according to the acute toxicity method.
The acute toxicity of the test substance to fish ( Leuciscus idus melanotus) was determined in a 48 -hour and 96-hour, static, aquatic effects
limit test.
No effects were noted, therefore, the 48 -hour and 96 -hour LC50 value for fish was determined to be >500 mg/L.
