Description of key information

Two 96h acute fish studies are available, however only one is considered valid as it was performed under semi-static conditions with analytical verification of the test solutions. The 96h-LC50 for this study was 1.6 mg/L based on measured concentrations.

One 48h acute study with Daphnia magna is available.The reported biological results were based on the mean measured test item concentrations. The 24- and 48- hour EC50s of the test item was calculated to be 11 mg/L with 95% Confidence limits of 7.7 and 16 mg/L.

Two studies on algae are available. One study on freshwater algae performed under GLP with measured concentrations of the parent compound is considered reliable.

The 72h-ErC50 for algae based on geomean measured concentrations is 0.8 mg/L, the ErC10 is 0.44 mg/L (geomean measured).

The chronic toxicity toDaphnia magnawas determined in a 21 -day semi-static test according to OECD guideline 211.

No significant effects were found up to 0.44 mg/L (TWA, equal to 1.0 mg/L nom.) on reproduction and parental length and weight. NOEC for these endpoints is equal to 0.44 mg/L (TWA).

The lowest EC10was found for reproduction and was 0.49 mg/L (TWA).

In order to predict effects of tert-butyl-peroxybenzoate in biological wastewater treatment plants, an activated sludge respiration inhibition test was performed according to the OECD 209 and the EEC Method C.11 Guidelines.

The 3h-EC50 of tert-butyl-peroxybenzoate for activated sludge is 43 mg/L. The 3h-EC10 is 6 mg/L.
