Conclusions:

Executive summary:

An Algal Growth Inhibition Test was performed by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment in accordance with OECD TG 201. Selenastrum capricornutum were exposed to 0 (control), 1.02, 2.56, 6.40, 16.0, 40.0 mg/L of 2 -butanone oxime for 72h under static conditions. The 72h-EC50 and 72h-NOEC based on algae (Selenastrum capricornutum) growht rate for test substance 2 -butanone oxime was determined to be 16 mg/L and 2.6 mg/L respectively. The 72 -EC50 and 72h-NOEC based on the area under growth curve (AUG) for 2 -butanone oxime was determined to be 6.1 mg/L and 1.0 mg/L.

Endpoint:
toxicity to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Justification for type of information:
REPORTING FORMAT FOR THE ANALOGUE APPROACH
Butan-2-one O,O',O''-(vinylsilanetriyl)oxime undergoes rapid hydrolysis in aqueous to butanone oxime and the corresponding silanol. Silanetriol undergo continuous condensation reactions to produce higher molecular weight siloxanes which are considered biologically unavailable. Therefore, the observed toxicity is likely due to butanone oxime and their values are comparable.
See attached the reporting format.

Details on results:
Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue substance butanone oxime (72h EC50 =16 mg/L, NOEC = 2.60 mg/L ), the read-across approach is applied and the 72h EC50 and NOEC for butan-2-one O,O',O''-(vinylsilanetriyl)oxime were calculated to be 19.19 mg/L and 3.12 mg/L respectively.
Validity criteria fulfilled:

Conclusions:
Based on read-across approach from experimental results on analogue butanone oxime, the 72h-EC50 and 72h-NOEC based on algae growth rate for butan-2-one O,O',O''-(vinylsilanetriyl)oxime was determined to be 19.19 mg/L and 3.12 mg/L respectively.
Executive summary:

An Algal Growth Inhibition Test was performed on analogue substance butanone oxime by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment in accordance with OECD TG 201. The 72h-EC50 and 72h-NOEC based on algae (Selenastrum capricornutum) growth rate was determined to be 16 mg/L and 2.6 mg/L respectively. Based on these results the read-across approach was performed and the 72h -EC50 and 72h-NOEC based on algae growth rate for butan-2-one O,O',O''-(vinylsilanetriyl)oxime was determined to be 19.19 mg/L and 3.12 mg/L respectively.

Additional information

Key study: Read-across approach from analogue butanone oxime:

Based on the read-across approach from experimental results on analogue butanone oxime (test method OECD 201, 72h-EC50 = 16 mg/L and 72h-NOEC = 2.6, based on algae growth rate), the algae 72h -EC50 and 72h-NOEC for butan-2-one O,O',O''-(vinylsilanetriyl)oxime was determined to be 19.19 mg/L and 3.12 mg/L (basis for effect: growth rate) respectively.
