Executive summary:

Various studies available for the test chemical were reviewed to determine the toxic nature of test chemical on the population rate and growth of microorganisms. The studies are as mentioned below:

 

In the first study for test chemical toxicological study was conducted to determine the nature and effect of test chemical when comes in contact with the Tetrahymena Thermophile. Test performed for the total exposure period of 48 hrs. Based on the effect observed on the Population growth rate inhibition of Tetrahymena thermophile (Ciliate Protozoa) during the exposure period of 48 hrs, the EC50 was determine to be 2.55 mg/l. Based on the effect observed on the microorganisms, chemical was consider as toxic.

 

Above study was supported by the second supporting study from authoritative database 2018. Toxicological study was conducted to determine the nature and effect of test chemical when comes in contact with the Tetrahymena Thermophile. Test performed for the total exposure period of 48 hrs. Based on the effect observed on the Population growth rate inhibition of Tetrahymena thermophile (Ciliate Protozoa) during the exposure period of 48 hrs, the EC50 was determine to be 2.9 mg/l. Based on the effect observed on the microorganisms, chemical was consider as toxic.

 

Thus based on the above effects observed on microorganisms, toxicity ranges from 2.55 mg/l to 2.9 mg/l.

Description of key information

1: Based on the effect observed on the Population growth rate inhibition of Tetrahymena thermophile (Ciliate Protozoa) during the exposure period of 48 hrs, the EC50 was determine to be 2.55 mg/l.

2: Based on the effect observed on the Population growth rate inhibition of Tetrahymena thermophile (Ciliate Protozoa) during the exposure period of 48 hrs, the EC50 was determine to be 2.9 mg/l.

EC50 for microorganisms:
2.55 mg/L

Additional information

Various studies available for the test chemical and structurally and functionally similar read across chemicals were reviewed to determine the toxic nature of test chemical on the population rate and growth of microorganisms. The studies are as mentioned below:

 

In the first study for read across chemical toxicological study was conducted to determine the nature and effect of test chemical when comes in contact with the Tetrahymena Thermophile. Test performed for the total exposure period of 48 hrs. Based on the effect observed on the Population growth rate inhibition of Tetrahymena thermophile (Ciliate Protozoa) during the exposure period of 48 hrs, the EC50 was determine to be 2.55 mg/l. Based on the effect observed on the microorganisms, chemical was consider as toxic.

 

Above study was supported by the second supporting study from authoritative database 2018.
