Description of key information

7 d NOEC based on frond no = 6 µg l-1 and weight (fw & dw) = 7 µg l- 1.  7 d EC50s = 81 and 30 µg l-1 for same endpoints, respectively.  3 week EC10 was 14.8 μg Ag/L and 7 day EC10 (growth) was 6.4 μg Ag/L 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Naumann et al 2007 is a 7 d test performed on Lemna minor. Limited experimental detail makes it difficult to fully evaluate the study, however it is said to have been performed in accordance with ISO 20079. NOEC based on frond no. = 6 µg l-1 and weight (fw & dw) = 7 µg l-1 ; EC50s = 81 and 30 µg l-1 for same endpoints, respectively.

Hutchinson & Czyrska 1975 determined the EC10 of AgNO3 to Salvinia natans was14.8 μg Ag/L whilst the EC10 of AgNO3 toLemna minor was96.8 μg Ag/L. in a non-GLP, non-guideline, 3 week test

Nasu & Kugimoto 1981 determined the EC10 (growth) of AgNO3 toLemna paucicostatato be 6.4 μg Ag/L and 16.67 μg Ag/L in a non-GLP, non-guideline, 7 day test
