Description of key information

Dodecene, hydroformylation products, high-boiling is with high probability acutely not harmful to aquatic algae.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The effects of Dodecene, hydroformylation products, high-boiling on toxicity to aquatic algae was investigated in a GLP study according to the OECD guideline 201 using Desmodesmus subspicatus as test species. Since the test substance is a mixture that is poorly soluble in water the study was performed according to the OECD guidance document 23 and the toxic effects of the test substance were determined in a water accommodated fraction of the test substance. Based on growth rate the NOEC was determined to be ≥ 100 mg/L (nominal). Since the study was designed as a limit test, EC values could not be calculated [BASF 2009].
