Abstract
The second edition contains over 120 SAR equations (Structure Activity Relationships) which are in current use by the Environmental Effects Branch to estimate the toxicity of industrial organic chemicals to aquatic organisms. These SARs can be applied to three broad categories of organic chemicals: (1) neutral organics which are non-reactive and non-ionizable, (2) neutral organics which are reactive and exhibit excess toxicity, and (3) surface active organic compounds such as surfactants and polycationic polymers. The scope of these SARs includes acute and chronic toxicity to aquatic vertebrates and invertebrates (fresh and saltwater species) and toxicity to freshwater algae.
