Description of key information

EC10 and EC50 values for the toxicity of  phenoxyethylacrylate to the freshwater greenalgae Desmodesmus subcapitatus was established at 72 and 96h hours, both in terms of biomass and growth rate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
4.44 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
0.71 mg/L

Additional information

EC10 and EC50 values for the toxicity of phenoxyethylacrylate to the freshwater greenalgae Desmodesmus subcapitatus was established at 72 and 96h hours, both in terms of biomass and growth rate. The testsytem was equal to ISO 8692 and a positive control ensured that the system was valid. EC 10 (96h) were 0.14 and 0.42 mg/l, and EC 50 (96h) were 1.33 and 4.1, when based on biomass and growth rate, respectively. EC10 (72 h) was 0.71 based on growth rate and EC50 (72 h) was 4.44 based on growth rate.

No data on marine algae have been identified.
