52.4 mg/L

Additional information

The test substance was tested for growth inhibition on algae.

The full test was performed in range of test substance nominal concentrations 21 - 100 mg·L-1.

For all evaluations and results were used the concentrations measured at the beginning of the test.

Test results:

72 hour - EbC50 = 65.7 mg·L-1 (determined concentration) (95% confidence limit: 54.8 – 76.6 mg·L-1)

72 hour - ErC50 > 89.2 mg·L-1(determined concentration)

72 hour - NOECb = 52.4 mg·L-1 (determined concentration)

72 hour - NOECr = 69.1 mg·L-1 (determined concentration)
