Additional information

The toxicity of dimethyl(propyl)amine (CAS 926 -63 -6) was studied according to OECD 201 using Desmodesmus subspicatus as test species. The exposure period was 72 h, the test design was static with six test concentrations and a negative control. The test concentrations were analytically verified. Since the recovery was 124 to 128%, the effect values are stated based on the measured concentrations. The 72 -h ErC50 was determined to be 6.89 mg/L, the corresponding ErC10 was 2.89 mg/L (BASF SE, 2013, report no. 60E0302/10E309).
