Description of key information

Within the test period of 28 days, a degradation of 60 % was determined for the test substance. Therefore, the test item is considered to be “Not Readily Biodegradable“ (Neuhan, 2011).
Within 28 days a degradation of 68 % was determined according to the OECD Guideline 302 D. Therefore the test item is considered to be "Not Inherently Biodegradable" (Neuhahn, 2011).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Ready biodegradation:

The test substance showed only 60 % biodegradation after 28 days and therefore has to be classified as "Not Readily Biodegradable".

Inherent biodegradation:

The test substance showed 68 % degradation according OECD guideline 302 D and therefore to be classified as "Not Inherent Biodegradable".
