Description of key information

The substance is poorly biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The determination of the ready biodegradation via the CO2-Evolution tests was conducted in accordance with OECD guideline 301B using domestic activated sludge as inoculum. At test termination after 28 days the substance was degraded by 0 - 10 %. Thus, the substance is not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. Currently, the substance is considered to be poorly biodegradable.
