Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
135 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Effects of Glyoxal 40% on mortality and biomass development of the earthworm Eisenia fetida were studied in a 14-d acute study following OECD TG 207. Based on nominal concentrations, the 14 -d LC50 was > 398 mg a.i./kg soil dw (BASF, 2009). Normalized to standard soil with 3.4% organic matter content, this corresponds to > 135 mg a.i./kg soil dw.
