Additional information

A 24-hour toxicity study with the house fly Musca domestica was conducted by Kocher and Ascher (1954). The test organisms were exposed to tetrahydronaphthalene at the test dose of 0.0002 ml/animal. However, due to missing analytical verification, the actual dose is uncertain. It was not conducted according to internationally accepted guidelines. The following endpoint was derived: LC100: <0.0002 ml per animal.
