Description of key information

A read across to L-aspartic acid was performed based on the similar chemistry of the 2 substances.  The transcribed value, considering the molecular weights of the 2 substances, is IC50,3h > 338 mg L-aspartic acid/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for microorganisms:
338 mg/L

Additional information

The inhibition of respiration of microorganisms could be waived, based on the readily biodegradability of L-ASP, which indicates a low toxicity to microorganisms. To obtain a more concrete data a read across was performed to SA.
