Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

Additional information

Data on the acute toxicity of trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) (CAS 7757-87-1) to aquatic algae are not available. The assessment was therefore based on studies conducted with the analogue substance tricalcium bis(orthophosphate) (CAS 7758-87-4) as part of a read across approach, which is in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex XI, 1.5.

The acute toxicity of tricalcium bis(orthophosphate) to aquatic algae was investigated in a study following OECD guideline 201 (Kim et al. 2013). Pseudokirchnerella subcapitata was exposed to nominal test substance concentrations of 0.3, 1, 3.1, 9.8, 31.3, and100 mg/L. The mean measured test concentrations after 72 hours was 0.61-1.56 mg/L. Based on the algal growth rate an EC50(72 h) >1.56 mg/L (measured) was determined (nominal: EC50(72 h) >100 mg/L).

Based on the study results for the read across substance tricalcium bis(orthophosphate) the assessed substance trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) is considered not acutely toxic to aquatic algae.
