Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Biotic degradation of the substance was determined by the Sealed-Vessel CO2 Evolution test using International Standard ISO 14593 (adopted March 1999) and draft Test Guideline OECD 310 (CO2 in sealed vessels - Headspace Test). Domestic, activated sludge was exposed to 9.7 mgC/l substance and incubated for 28 days. The total inorganic carbon content of each sample was then determined using a carbon analyser. The substance tested at 9.7 mg/L was found not to be readily biodegradable (maximum of 2.6% degradation after 14 days and 0.1% degradation after 28 days) under the conditions of the test.
