Executive summary:

The toxicity of trimethylopropane on the green algae Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata (reported as Selenastrum carpicornutum) was tested according to an OECD guideline. The 72-h EbC50 was determined to be greater than 1000 mg/L (based on nominal concentrations).

Being performed by EA Japan according to a OECD-Guideline, the study is considered to be acceptable.
