Description of key information

Under the test conditions tert-butyl peroxypivalate does not show inhibition of the bacterial oxygen consumption up to 10 000 mg/L. Therefore, the EC10 of tert-butyl peroxypivalate was determined to be higher than 10 000 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
10 000 mg/L

Additional information

The toxicity of tert-butyl peroxypivalate to microogranisms was assessed according to the Robra test. Under the test conditions tert-butyl peroxypivalate does not show any inhibition of the bacterial oxygen consumption up to 10 000 mg/L. Therefore, the EC10 of tert-butyl peroxypivalate was determined to be higher than 10 000 mg/L.
