Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

OECD Guideline 301 E (Ready biodegradability: Modified OECD Screening Test)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable

Additional information

Several studies on biodegradation in water, BOD5 and COD are available for the substance CAS 1195028 -55 -7 as well as for the Direct Orange 39 (CAS 1325 -54 -8) which has the identical chemical molecular structure in respect to the anionic organic components.

The biodegradation in water study considered as a Key Study is the one done according to OECD guideline 301E on the same substance CAS 1195028 -55 -7. The result on % of degradation based on the DOC removal parameter shows that the substance can’t be classified as ready biodegradable, but it has an inherent biodegradability as it presents a DOC removal of 48% after 28 days.

Biodegradability refers to the organic part of the substance, and both the substance and CAS 1195028 -55 -7 and CAS 1325 -54 -8 which have the same organic molecular structure support the result: The substance is inherent biodegradable.
