Description of key information

Toxicity of  Alkylation and transalkylation products of biphenyl with propene to aquatic algae was determined in an alga growth inhibition test according OECD TG 201 (Bussard 1998). Test concentration was as close to water solubility as technically achievable. At the concentration obtained, no growth inhibition was observed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
10.1 µg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
10.1 µg/L
