Description of key information

Key study: Read-across from analogue: the 48-h EC50 for methyl chloroacetate is calculated to be 18.33 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on the QSAR prediction for the analogue ethyl chloroacetate (48 h EC50 = 20.8 mg/l; Multicase model; Danish EPA) and the molecular weights, the read-across approach is applied and for algae the EC50 for methyl chloroacetate is calculated to be 18.33 mg/l.
