Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The Daphnia were exposed to a lrange of concentrations, nominally 0.8, 1.6, 3.2, 6.25, 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 mg/l dissolved in water. Auxiliaries used to prepare the test media were an ultrasonic bath , a magnetic stirrer and a folded filter. Observations were made on the swimming ability and the immobilisation rate, respectively, after 24 and 48 hours of exposure. The following values were determined:

EC50 (24 h) > 100 mg/l

EC50 (48 h) > 100 mg/l

Highest test concentration resulting in 0% immobilisation (EC0 48h): ≥ 100 mg/l.

The results are expressed in terms of nominal concentrations.

The hardness of the dilution water used was 15.4 °dH (= 274.9 mg/L CaCO3).
