Additional information

In the key study, the acute toxicity of the test material to the fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) was determined in a 96 hour semi-static test conducted in accordance with the OECD Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 203 under GLP conditions.

The nominal concentrations tested were 0.65, 1.1, 1.8, 3.0 and 5.0 mg/L, along with a parallel control and DMF solvent control. The analytically determined test material concentrations in the test media varied in the range from 87 to 95 % of the nominal value.

Exposure of fathead minnows to the test material resulted in a 96-hour median lethal concentration (LC50) of 2.27 mg/L, with a 95 % confidence interval of 1.86 to 2.83 mg/L. The 96 hour no observed effect concentration (NOEC) was 0.958 mg/L (this concentration allowed 90 % survival with no sub-lethal effects). After 96 hours of exposure, there was 100 % survival in the control and solvent control.
