The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The 96-h ErC50 value is >1,000 mg/L and the NOErC 250 mg/L in Pseudokirchnerella subcapitata (reported as Selenastrum capricornutum).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

For algae a GLP-compliant growth inhibition test was performed according to OECD Guideline 201 (Duphar B.V., 1992d). Growth rates and biomass production on Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata (tested as: Selenastrum capricornutum) were affected, but a reduction of more than 50% towards the control was not observed. The ErC50 was greater than 1,000 mg/L. The EbC50 was greater than 1,000 mg/L at days 1 and 2,900 mg/L at day 3 and 880 mg/L at day 4. The 96-h ErC50 of >1,000 mg/L and the 96-h NOErC of 250 mg/L in Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata (tested as: Selenastrum capricornutum) will be used in the assessment.
