Description of key information

 There is one key study on aquatic plants other than algae which was rated as Klimisch 1, reliable without restrictions (Putt, 2003; published in Mihaich et al., 2009). This study followed test method OECD 221 and exposed Lemna gibba. The EC50 was determined to be 20 mg/L (frond density) and the NOEC was reported as 7.8 mg/L (frond density, growth and biomass). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater plants:
20 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater plants:
7.8 mg/L

Additional information

There is one key study on aquatic plants other than algae which was rated as Klimisch 1, reliable without restrictions (Putt, 2003; published in Mihaich et al., 2009). This study followed test method OECD 221 and exposed Lemna gibba over 7 days to 0, 1.3, 3.2, 8.0, 20, and 50 mg/L of BPA. The EC50 was determined to be 20 mg/L (frond density) and the NOEC was reported as 7.8 mg/L (frond density, growth and biomass).
