No data are available for the toxicity to microorganisms of hexyl salicylate.
No data has been generated to fulfil this data requirement. However, a
biodegradation study with hexyl salicylate was conducted according to
OECD guideline 301F with a nominal concentration of 100 mg/L. Under the
conditions of the test, hexyl salicylate underwent 91 % biodegradation
after 28 days. Biodegradation reached 82 % at the end of the 10-day
window (days 2 to 12).
Thus, hexyl salicylate should be regarded as readily biodegradable
according to this test.
At the concentration used in the test (100 mg/L), hexyl salicylate is
not inhibitory to the micro-organisms.
In the absence of toxicity study conducted according to OECD guideline
209 the ECHA guidance document, Chapter R126.96.36.199 states the
following: “The assumption that the substance under investigation is not
inhibitory to the micro-organisms when dosed in the test system is
implicit in ready biodegradability testing (i.e. ... OECD 301F). If a
compound degrades well in a ready biodegradability test, or does not
inhibit the degradation of a positive control at a certain
concentration, this concentration can be used as a NOEC value”.
Therefore it is considered appropriate to set the NOEC for this endpoint
as 100 mg/L.
