35 mg/L
EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
13 mg/L

Additional information

The acute aquatic toxicity of the test item FAT 40849/A TE was tested in a valid GLP study according to EU Method C.3 by exposing the freshwater green algae Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata for 72 hours in a static toxicity test. A series of nominal concentrations of 2.2, 4.6, 10, 22, 46 and 100 mg/L was tested. The nominal concentrations were confirmed by analysis by HPLC and measured concentrations were 8.7, 11, 46 and 102 mg/L (the lowest two test concentrations were not analysed). A negative impact on the growth rate of green algae was seen and the corresponding EC50 value was >100 mg/L and the EC10 value was 25 mg/L. The negative impact on biomass yield was stronger and the corresponding EC50 value was 35 mg/L and the EC10 value was 13 mg/L.
