Description of key information

The 3-hour NOEC of dimethyl 2-methyl glutarate to activated sludge microorganisms was > = 1000 mg/L. The 3-hour EC20, EC50 and EC80 were clearly higher than 1000 mg/L. Hence, dimethyl 2-methyl glutarate has no toxic effect on the respiration rate of activated sludge microorganisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One experimental study, scored as Klimisch 1, is available (Seyfried B., 2007) and selected as a key study.
