Description of key information

The substance does not have the potential to bioaccumulate. In a study according to EU Method A.8, OECD Guideline 107 (Partition Coefficient (n-octanol / water), shake-flask Method) the octanol-water partition coefficient was determined to be logPow = 0.9 at 25°C measured with GC/FID. A further study was carried out to assess the biodegradation properties of the test item. In a study according to OECD Guideline 301 D (Ready biodegradability: Closed Bottle Test) the test item did not reach the pass level of 60 % within two weeks. Therefore, the test item was considered to have exceeded the ready biodegradability pass level of 60 % ThODNH3 removal within 28 days, but the 14 day window criterium was not met. However, it may be characterized as inherently and ultimately degradable on the basis of these test results.
