Additional information

In a guideline study performed according to Directive 84/449/EEC, C.2 the acute toxicity of the substance to Daphnia magna was investigated. The animals were exposed to the test substance for 48 hours. Determining the mobility of D. magna an EC50 of 0.51 mg/l was recorded (BASF AG 1987). In a second available the mortality of Aedes aegypti larvae after 24 hours exposure to the substance was tested. At test termination an EC50 of 9 mg/l was determined (Chantraine et al. 1998).
