Additional information

Phototransformation in water is no requirement under Reach. However there are some studies available which demonstrate that in surface waters photolysis can contribute to NTA degradation [Stolzberg and Hume, 1975; Svenson et al., 1989]. Nevertheless, biodegradation is the predominant degradation mechanism of NTA.
