Description of key information

Since no toxicity study in algae is available for Sodium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, the results from the structural analogue Lithium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide are used instead (for details see Read-across justification as attached in section 13). The 72-hour EC50 on algae (Desmodesmus subcapitatus) was 178 mg/L based on growth rate and the NOEC was 5 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
178 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
5 mg/L
