Abstract: The acute toxicity (LC50) to the earthworm Eisinia Foetida of two chloroanillines was determined by the EEC (1985) method. The test was made on artificial and natural soils. LX50 for 2,4,5-trichloroaniline varied between 460 and 3100 mg/kg and for 2,3,5,6-tetracholoroanilline between 1400 and 2000 mg/kg.In order to assess the toxicity of chloroanilines to the earthworm in soil, LX50 (umol/kg) was correlated with the organic carbon content f oc, and the octanol/water partition coefficient (Kow) in a multiple linear regression analysis: LX50 = 4.3f oc 0.9Kow 0.1.
