The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

EC50 for microorganisms:
219 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
70 mg/L

Additional information

Toxicity to microorganisms has been investigated in an activated sludge respiration inhibition test according to OECD test methods. 4 –MHHPA caused a concentration related inhibition ranging from 14% at 58 mg/L to 99% at 1000 mg/L. The EC50 was 219 (189 – 248) mg/L with concentrations of 95.3 mg/L and below causing less that 20% inhibition and regarded as not toxic to microorganisms of a municipal sewage treatment plant. EC10, estimated from reported EC20, EC50 and EC80 values, was approximately 70 mg/L. Effects or pH on inhibition were examined and found to be the major factor in determining effects, a concentration of 1000 mg/L causing <20% inhibition when pH was adjusted back to neutral.
