Abstract Algal (Selenastrum capricornutum) assays were performed on 11 chemicals selected from a larger list of candidate chemicals provided by the EPA's Office of Toxic Substances (OTS). Limited chemical analysis of those chemicals that could be tested readily at ERL-C was performed in support of the bioassays. Of the 11 chemicals tested, two (tetraethyl ammonium chloride and butyl mercaptan) were judged non-toxic to the algae by virtue of the calculated EC50 exceeding 1000 mg/L. Three chemicals were extremely toxic (EC50 < 10 mg/L; methyl vinyl ketone, octylamine, and phthalic anhydride); three were highly toxic (EC50 > 10 mg/L but < 100 mg/L; azosulfamide, methyl acrylate, and nitrobenzene); and three were moderately toxic (EC50 > 100 mg/L but < 1000 mg/L; glyoxal, sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, and glycidol). The work contributes to the toxicity data base assembled on these chemicals. Previously, algal toxicity information was lacking for these compounds.
