Acute and chronic (or sub-chronic) toxicity of five selected antimicrobial agents, triclosan, triclocarban, resorcinol, phenoxyethanol and p-thymol, was investigated using green algae, daphnia and fish. Having compared the predicted no effect concentration (PNEC) determined from the toxicity data with measured environmental concentrations (MEC), a preliminary ecological risk assessment of these antimicrobials was conducted. The MEC/PNEC ratios were >1 for triclosan and triclocarban for some sites but were <0.1 for the other compounds in most cases.
