Description of key information

EC50 (72hr)>100mg/l

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for freshwater algae:
100 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for freshwater algae:
100 mg/L

Additional information

In a 72-hour guideline and GLP aquatic toxicity study (static) in green alga, a limit concentration of 100 mg/L ethoxypropyl acetate did not affect the rate of growth or total biomass.  The EC50 is therefore considered to be > 100 mg/L, and the NOEC is considered to be >= 100 mg/L under the conditions of this test.
