Description of key information

At 10000 mg/l an inhibition of 14.3% was observed, thus the EC50 is > 10000 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance 2-ethylhexyl salicylate has been tested in three different concentration (100, 1000, and 10000 mg/l) for respiratory inhibition but the IC50 could not be achieved. At 10000 mg/l an inhibition of 14.3% was observed. Hence, the EC50 is > 10000 mg/L and the substance is not considered to be toxic to sewage sludge bacteria.
