45 mg/L

Additional information

One reliable study is available for the registered substance. The toxicity to freshwater algae was studied according to OECD TG No. 201 and GLP. Cultures of Scenedesmus subspicatus were exposed to substance at nominal test concentrations of 25, 45, 81, 146, 262 mg/L over a test period of 72 hours (static test). The validity criteria were fulfilled. The ErC50 is determined to 160 mg/L, the NOEC (growth rate) is determined to 45 mg/L.
