Additional information

In a non-GLP, 72 -hour static test with the green algae Desmosdemus subspicatus according to a national standard method (German Industrial Standard DIN 38412, Part 9), the algal toxicity of N,N-dimethylacetamide was studied. The original data were statistically re-evaluated using Toxrat Pro v2.09. Based on growth rate an EC50 (72 h) of > 500 mg/L and a NOEC (72 h) of >= 500 mg/L were determined (BASF AG, 1989/2007. Report No. 2/1021/88) indicating the substance to be with high probability acutely not harmful to aquatic algae.
