Additional information

A study was performed to assess the acute toxicity of the test item toDaphnia magna. The method followed was designed to be compatible with the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals (April 2004) No 202, "Daphniasp., Acute Immobilisation Test" referenced as Method C.2 of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008.


The 48-Hour EC50for the test item to Daphnia magna based on nominal test concentrations was greater than 100 mg/L. The No Observed Effect Concentration was 18 mg/L.


Analysis of the test preparations at 0 and 48 hours showed measured test concentrations to range from 87% to 92% of nominal value and so the results are based on nominal test concentrations only.
