Description of key information

2,3-Epoxypropyl neodecanoate was evaluated for acute algal toxicity in two independent static exposure O.E.C.D. 201 Testing Guideline "Alga Growth Inhibiton Test".  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
1.2 mg/L

Additional information

The test substance,2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate was accessed for aquatic toxicity in two independent static exposure O.E.C.D. test guideline no. 201 studies with algae. Based on an EC50 value of 1.2 -3.6 mg/L the test substance is considered to be toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects. The Yield EC50 value of 1.2 mg/L is the lowest EC50 value and is most appropriate for derivation of test substance PNECs.
