Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

In a 7-day exposure study with red fescue grass, the IC50 for germination was 500.8 mg NaCl/kg soil dw. In a 7-day exposure study with Kentucky bluegrass the NOEC for stem growth was 243 mg NaCl/kg soil dw.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for terrestrial plants:
500.8 mg/kg soil dw
Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for terrestrial plants:
243 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

In one study, evaluated as a Klimish score 2, toxicity of sodium chloride toward four species of terrestrial macrophytes was examined in regard to germination and stem growth. The 7-day IC50 for seed germination ranged between 500 and 1890 mg/kg dw soil for the various plant species, and the 7-day NOEC for stem growth ranged between 243 and 360 mg/kg dw for the various plant species.
