Additional information

Tong et al. (1996) carried out a 14-day and a 21-day chronic toxicity study in Daphnia magna using the OECD 1987 Testing Guidelines with daily renewal of test solutions but without measurement of acrylonitrile. They reported that the results of the two studies were identical, with a NOEC for survival of 2 mg/L nominal (LOEC > 4 mg/L) and a NOEC for reproduction of 0.5 mg/L nominal. This study is reported by the EU RAR (2004) to be the critical study.
