Description of key information

The toxicity to aquatic algae of read-across substance, tris(2-ethylhexyl) benzene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate was evaluated according to OECD guidance: NOEC - 100 mg/L

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
100 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
100 mg/L

Additional information

The effect of read-across substance, tris(2-ethylhexyl) benzene-1,2,4-tricarboxylate, on algae growth has been investigated in a 72 hour test according to OECD test methods. Dissolution/dispersion agents were used to increase concentration of the substance in the test medium. The EC50 (72h) was determined to be >100 mg/L and the NOEC was 100 mg/L, the highest concentration examined.
