pH:
7.0 - 8.0
Dissolved oxygen:
7.8 - 8.6 mg/L
Nominal and measured concentrations:
test concentrations: 3.16, 10, 31.6, 100, 316, 1000 mg/L
Details on test conditions:
Fish tank: 300 x 135 x 200 mm

Key result
Duration:
96 h
Dose descriptor:
LC50
Effect conc.:
562 mg/L
Nominal / measured:
meas. (geom. mean)
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Basis for effect:
mortality (fish)
Remarks on result:
other: Test substance was added to water and treated with Ultra-Turrax for 60 Seconds. In case of all test concentrations unsolved substance in powder form could be seen on surface of test medium.
Duration:
96 h
Dose descriptor:
LC0
Effect conc.:
316 mg/L
Nominal / measured:
nominal
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Basis for effect:

Remarks on result:
other: Test substance was added to water and treated with Ultra-Turrax for 60 Seconds. In case of all test concentrations unsolved substance in powder form could be seen on surface of test medium.
Duration:
96 h
Dose descriptor:
LC100
Effect conc.:
1 000 mg/L
Nominal / measured:
nominal
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Basis for effect:
mortality (fish)
Remarks on result:
other: Test substance was added to water and treated with Ultra-Turrax for 60 Seconds. In case of all test concentrations unsolved substance in powder form could be seen on surface of test medium.
Details on results:
The LC 0 and LC 100 values were determined directly. The LC 50 value was determined computationally and graphically applying the dose-response curve. The test duration is 96h.
Sublethal observations / clinical signs:

Result of control: no mortality.

In case of all nominal test concentrations (3.16, 10, 31.6, 100, 316 and 1000 mg/L) a normal swimming behaviour of fishes could be observed.

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Remarks:
Inspection of test, raw data and report were controlled by the quality assurance at times.
Conclusions:
Vulkacit P Extra N was tested on short-term toxicity to fish and a LC 50 value of 562 mg/L was determined.
Executive summary:

Vulkacit P Extra N was tested on short-term toxicity to fish. A LC 50 value of 562 mg/L was determined via dose-response curve using measured values to LC 0 (316 mg/L) and LC 100 (1000 mg/L). Analysis was performed on Danio rerio under static and GLP conditions according to UBA test protocol (comparable to OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 203 'Fish, Acute Toxicity Test').
