Description of key information

The 72h-ErC50 (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) is equal to 99 mg/L; meaning that sebacic acid, compound with hexane-1,6-diamine is harmful to algae. The 72h-NOErC (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) is equal to 3.7 mg/L and thus above the chronic threshold of 1 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
99 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
3.7 mg/L

Additional information

An experimental study, scored as Klimisch 1, was selected as a key study. It was performed in compliance with GLP according to OECD 201 Guideline.
