Description of key information

EL50 (72 h)> 0.264 mg/L (measured)(Desmodesmus subspicatus, EU Method C.3)
EL50 (72 h)> 100 mg/L (nominal)(Desmodesmus subspicatus, EU Method C.3)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A study evaluating the toxicity of Glycerides, C8-21 and C8-21-unsaturated, mono- and di-, acetates (CAS No. 97593-30-1) to algae is available (Weyers, 2007). This test was conducted according to EU method C.3 (Algal Inhibition test), under GLP conditions.Desmodesmus subspicatuswas exposed to the test substance for 72 hours at 23 ± 2°C. After the exposure period, no effects on algal biomass or growth rate were reported at any of the concentrations tested. Therefore, the EL50 (72 h) is > 0.264 mg/L (measured concentration).

In conclusion, no effects were observed up to the maximum achievable concentration in test medium.
