Description of key information

A key study evaluating the biodegradability of Amber Core (P-#620) by microorganisms is available. The percentage biodegradation of the test substance was 3% on the average and it is considered that the test substance was not biodegraded under the conditions of the study.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

One key study according to the OECD Guideline 301C (modified MITI Test (I)) performed under GLP is available on the biodegradability of Amber Core (P-#620) by microorganisms. The concentration of test substance was 100 mg/L, the concentration of activated sludge was 30 mg/L and the cultivating duration was 28 days. The measurement of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) was performed and the results show that the percentage biodegradation of the test substance was 3% on the average. Amber Core was not biodegraded under these test conditions.
