Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a study performed according to EU Method C.3 (Algal Inhibition test) algal growth in presence of N-vinylformamide was tested. Scenedesmus subspicatus (new name: Desmodesmus subspicatus) was exposed to the substance for 72 hours. At test termination an EC50 > 100 mg/L was determined (BASF AG, 1995).
