Test solutions

Vehicle:
not specified
Details on test solutions:
The primary stock solution used in the range-finding test was prepared by dissolving 10 mg of the test substance in 40 mL of dilution water – M4 and the total volume was completed to 100 mL, resulting in a concentration of 100 mg.L-1. The secondary stock solutions of the 10; 1 and 0,1 mg.L-1 were prepared by dilutions of the primary stock solution.
The primary stock solution used in the definitive test was prepared by dissolving 50 mg of the test substance in 40 mL of dilution water – M4 and the total volume was completed to 500 mL, resulting in a concentration of 100 mg.L-1.

Results and discussion

Effect concentrations
Key result
Duration:
48 h
Dose descriptor:
EC50
Effect conc.:
ca. 51.86 mg/L
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
other: (95% confidence limits = 43.61 to 61.68 mg.L-1).
Results with reference substance (positive control):
The 24-hours EC50 value of the reference substance (potassium dichromate) was 1.05 mg.L-1 (95% confidence limits = 0.91 to 1.21 mg.L-1), showing the sensitivity of the test system (ISO 6341 / OECD 202, 2004).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The 48-hours EC50 value of (R)-3,7-dimethyl-1,6-octadien-3-ol was 51.86 mg.L-1 (95% confidence limits = 43.61 to 61.68 mg.L-1).
