Description of key information

The substance shows no toxicity to aquatic algae at saturation concentration in the test medium. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
0.12 mg/L

Additional information

One test was performed for the toxicity to algae using the OECD Guideline 201 and in compliance with GLP. Considering the low water solubility of the substance, a saturation solution was prepared and no significant inhibition of the growth rate was observed at the maximum tested concentration in the test medium, which is 0.12 mg/l. The substance was demonstrated to be not toxic to algae (NOEC >= 0.12 mg/L).

The NOEC >= 0.12 mg/l will be used to express the lack of toxicity of the substance to aquatic algae.
