Additional information

The acute toxicity of nonanal to Daphnia magna was investigated in a 48-hour GLP-guideline study according to OECD TG 202. The test concentrations were (nominal/mean measured) 0/< LOQ (control), 0.78/ 0.320, 1.3/0.706, 2.2/1.12, 3.6/2.14, and 6.0/3.48 mg/L. The measured concentrations ranged from 41-59 % of nominal concentrations, but were steady throughout the test. The analytical determination were performed with HPLC/UV. The physico-chemical parameters were within the recommended ranges. The validity criteria of OECD TG 202 were fulfilled. Based on mean measured concentrations, the 48-h EC50 was 1.54 mg/L and the 48-h LC50 3.48 mg/L. The NOEC was 0.706 mg/L (Ward, 2003).
