Description of key information

Carbohydrates and Sugars, hexitols, anhydro, was tested for its toxicity to micro-organisms and no inibition was observed after 3 hours on the respiration of activated sludge at the highest tested concentration of 1000 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 000 mg/L

Additional information

The Carbohydrates and Sugars, hexitols, anhydro, was tested for its toxicity to micro-organisms according to the OECD Guideline 209 (Activated Sludge, Respiration Inhibition Test) and in compliance with GLP.

No inibition was observed after 3 hours on the respiration of activated sludge at the highest tested concentration of 1000 mg/L. The 3 -hour EC50 is >1000 mg/L and the NOEC is equal to 1000 mg/L.
