Comparison of the Susceptibility of 11 Freshwater Species to 8 Chemical Compounds. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for freshwater plants:
3 200 mg/L

Additional information

The aquatic plant Lemna minor was exposed to sodium bromide in test waters in a static toxicity test. Observations of specific growth rates were used to determine the LOEC and NOEC values. The NOEC was found to be 3200 mg/L sodium bromide based on specific growth rates.
