Additional information

There is one reliable study available regarding the toxic effect of Suberonitrile (CAS 629 -40 -3). The study was performed according to OECD 201 under GLP conditions. The test species was Desmodesmus subspicatus. The test concentrations were analytically verified. The measured concentrations were ±20% of the nominal values (90% to 116% mean recovery). The 72 -h effect values are as follows: ErC10 = 140 mg/L, ErC50 > 320 mg/L (BASF SE, 2012; report no. 60E0385/11E123).
