Additional information

The toxicity (LC50 and chronic toxicity value) is estimated by using ECOSAR v1.11. Two models are available, the estimation form the ECOSAR Class (Benzyl Alcohols) and the Neutral Organic Structure Analysis Relationship (baseline toxicity). In general, the values for toxicity estimated by Neutral Structure SAR are higher and therefore, the estimated toxicity lower compared to the estimation based on ECOSAR class (Benzyl Alcohols). Lowest LC/EC50 and chronic toxicity value, were observed for green algae, at 21.568 g/L and 3.766 g/L, respectively. Estimation by calculation only provides an approximation. The EPA recommends that empirical measures provide better results. However, empirical studies have not been done, so that we adapt the prediction.
