The substance Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4) is not harmful to algae. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One GLP-study, investigating the toxicity to algae of Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4), is available. The static algal growth inhibition test with Pseudokirchnerella subcapitata according to EPA OPPTS 850.5400 (Algal Toxicity, Tiers I and II) determined an ErL50 and ErL10 (72h) of > 100 mg/L. The NOEC was not determined, as 5% mean inhibition of growth rate was observed. Overall, the test substance is not harmful to algae.
