Chronic effects of triethylene glycol (TEG), a chemical frequently used as a carrier-solvent in toxicity tests, were investigated in a 23-day life-cycle toxicity test with a mysid (Mysidopsis bahia) and in a 28-day early life-stage toxicity test with the tidewater silverside (Menidia peninsulae). The authors concluded that no direct adverse effect should be expected as a result of using TEG at concentrations as high as 100,000 times (mysids) and 360 times (tidewater silversides) those recommended in ASTM drafts of standard practices (less than or equal to 0.01 microliter/L in Mysidopsis bahia life-cycle tests and less than or equal to 0.01 microliter/L in tests with early life-stages of Menidia peninsulae) and that either a seawater or a TEG control may not be necessary.
