Description of key information

No effects up to the limit of the water solubility of the substance.
EC10 (30 min) > 10,000 mg a.i./L (nominal) for Pseudomonas putida (DIN 38412, part 27)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study investigating the toxicity of D-Glucose, reaction products with alcohols C16-18 (even numbered) (excess) to microorganisms is available. In this key study performed according to DIN 38412, part 27 and GLP, Pseudomonas putida was exposed to nominal concentrations of 1000, 3000 and 10,000 mg/L of a product containing 30% APG and 70% fatty alcohol in a static test design. Analytical verification of the test substance concentrations was not performed. As a result, an EC0 (30 min) value of 10,000 mg/L (nominal) and an EC10 (30 min) value of > 10,000 mg/L (nominal) was reported. Hence it can be concluded that there is no toxicity to microorganisms up to the limit of the water solubility of the substance (Henkel, 1993).
