Member of this category are not inhibitory to microorganisms at 2mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Huntingdon Life Sciences (2004) tested the toxicity of 68476 -55 -1 to microorganisms as part of a ready biodegradation screening study (OECD 301D). In a toxicity test where microorganisms were exposed to both the test substance and reference substance (sodium benzoate) no inhibition of the biodegradation of the reference substance was observed. It can therefore be concluded that the test substance is not inhibitory to microorganisms at a concentration of 2 mg/l. This data is read across to other members of this category.
