Description of key information

The 72-hour NOEC of dimethyl 2-methyl glutarate to Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata was > = 60 mg/L (measured concentration) based on the growth rate. The 72-hour LOEC, EC10 and EC50 were clearly higher than the mean measured concentration of 60 mg/L. Hence, Dimethyl 2-methyl glutarate is not harmful for the algal species tested.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One experimental study, scored as Klimisch 1, is available (Bätscher R., 2008) and selected as a key study.
