Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

The substance is a colourless and fluid liquid, less dense than water. It is moderately soluble in water, with low vapour pressure, which suggests low tendency for volatilisation. It is not expected to be surface active, and will not dissociate under environmental conditions. Potential for bioaccumulation in organisms is low.

It is NOT considered as hazardous with regard to physical hazards, according to CLP criteria.
