Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

The determination of the inhibition of oxygen consumption in the activated sludge was performed in a 3-hours test with 3b-A, according to the OECD guideline 209. The concentration tested were 1000, 500, 250, 125, 62.5 mg/l based on active ingredient of the test substance, which equate to a nominal test concentration of 1333, 667, 333, 167 and 83.3 mg/l. The EC50 at 3 hours was stated as greater than 1000 mg/l (nominal, act. ingr.) (BASF SE, 2015).

Three further studies on the analogue substance 3a-A(Na) are available in order to assess the toxicity of the substance to microorganisms, but each of them presents some lacking: in two of them a water solution with 20 % of the substance was tested and for the third one just the summary is available. The RCC - Umweltchemie GmbH & Co. study (1993) can be considered as the most reliable, since even if the tested substance concentration is low, the test was performed at 1000 mg/l, with no inhibitory effect. This set the result at > 200 mg/l, calculated on the substance effective concentration. Justification for Read Across is given in Section 13 of IUCLID.
