Additional information

The acute toxicity of DIMETHYLISOPROPYLAMINE (DMIPA) to Daphnia magna was assessed according to Directive 79/831/EEC, Annex V, Part C during 48h (Study report, 1989). When pH was not neutralised, EC50_48h has been shown to be 38.4 mg/L when not neutralised and > 62.5 mg/L when pH was adjusted. Therefore it is probable that the alkalinity of the test medium caused by the substance at higher concentrations is also responsible for the mortality.
