Any other information on results incl. tables

Because of the low solubility of the substance in water, a supersaturated suspension of 100 mg/L was made and filtered. The study was conducted using the undiluted filtrate. The measured concentration decreased by 0.037 mg/L in initially up to 0.022 mg/L at the end. The average measured concentration 0.029 mg/L was used for the “Observed-effect concentration”.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The substance can be classified as non-toxic to aquatic plants up to the limit of its solubility.
