Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The study by Hoechst AG (1992) is 16 hour static ecotoxicity test with the freshwater microorganism Pseudomonas putida, following the guideline DIN 38 412, part 8. It is a GLP compliant study, although there are some limitations with study design and reporting. Taking this into account it is still considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.
