Description of key information

The substance is biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable but failing 10-day window

Additional information

The biodegradation of the substance was tested under GLP conditions according to OECD guideline 310 using domestic activated sludge as inoculum under enhanced conditions with a prolonged contact time of 60 days (BASF 2011). After 28 days 69% of the substance are mineralised related to CO2 production while after 60 days 92 % of the substance are degraded. This result indicates that the substance is not persistent in the aquatic environment.
