Description of key information

Two studies with green algae were conducted. The key study is an OECD 201 guideline compliant study conducted with Desmodesmus subspicatus over 72 hours. Test concentrations of 1.00, 3.20, 10.0, 32.0 and 100 mg/L were investigated for effects on growth rate and yield inhibition under static conditions. The test concentration were analytical verified and in the range of 80% to 120% of nominal. After 72 hours the EC50 values for inhibition of growth rate and yield were 29 and 16.7 mg/L, respectively. The EC10 values for inhibition of growth rate and yield were 16.5 and 11.7 mg/L, respectively. All validity criteria were met.
In a non-GLP supporting study over 5 days with the green algae Desmodesmus subspicatus, formerly know as Scenedesmus subspicatus, nominal test concentrations of 10, 18, 32, 58, 100 mg/L were investigated. After 5 days the EC50 for growth rate was graphically determined to be 47 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
29 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
16.5 mg/L
