- lot/batch number of test material: 18315014
- Purity: 97.0 corr. area-%
- Physical state: liquid
- Color: colorless, clear
- Density: 0.9927 g/mL (BASF, see IUCLID Ch. 4.4)
- Vapor pressure: p/hPa = 2.2E-06 (20°C); 4.2E-06 (25°C); 8.3E-05 (50°C) (BASF, see IUCLID Ch. 4.6)

- Storage conditions: ambient (room temperature)
- Storage stability of test material: The stability of the test substance under storage conditions over the test period was guaranteed by the sponsor, and the sponsor holds this responsibility.
- Stability and homogeneity of the test material in the vehicle/solvent under test conditions (e.g. in the exposure medium) and during storage: The stability of the test substance as a solution in test water and under testing conditions was determined by concentration control analysis. The test solutions were visibly homogeneous.

- adjustment of pH: no
Analytical monitoring:
Details on sampling:
- For the first interval, samples were collected within 30 min before insertion of the test organisms (0 h) from all test vessels and after 24 hours from all test vessels with aged test solution. For the second interval, samples were collected from fresh test solutions within 30 min of test solution renewal at 72 h and after 96 hours from all test vessels with aged test solution.
- The samples for analysis were collected with a glass pipette inserted in the middle of the test vessel. The required sample volume (exactly 10 mL, stabilized with 10 μL formic acid) was deposited into glass ampoules.
- Since the measured concentrations of the test substance in the test solutions were within ±20% of the nominal concentrations, the effect concentration can be expressed relative to the nominal concentration for the evaluation of the test substance.
Details on test solutions:
- The test substance was homogenized by shaking the container before use then approx. 1.2 g of the test substance was weighed and the defined volume of test water (10 L) was filled into the test vessel. An aliquot from the test water in the test vessel was taken and mixed with the test substance using a high shear mixer and the mixture was poured into the test vessel and the whole test batch was homogenized again with an ultra turrax.
- Test solution was checked for complete dissolution of the test substance.
- Nominal concentration: 0 mg/L (control), 120 mg/L

Additional information

The short-term toxicity of modified Isophoronediamine (MIPDA, CAS 93940 -97 -7) to fish was assessed under semi-static conditions in an OECD 203 study using Danio rerio as test organism (BASF, 2020, Report no. 17F0241/13E077).

Based on the mortality of the fish the following effect value was determined: 96-h LC50 > 120 mg/L (based on nominal concentrations, verified by analytical measurement).The pH of the test solutions were not adjusted and all validity criteria according to the OECD guideline were fullfilled.

With high probability the substance is concluded to be acutely not harmful to fish.
