Description of key information

Biodegradation in water and sediment: not determined.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation 1907/2006/EC (Annex IX - 9.2.1.2 & 9.2.1.4 - column 2) simulation tests of biodegradation in water and sediment do not need to be conducted as the substance can be regarded as biodegradable via common microbial pathways although the rate of degradation is likely to be limited due to limited bioavailability as a result of low water solubility.
