Description of key information

All three compounds of the amine heads category proved to be readily biodegradable fulfilling the 10-day window requirement. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

For all three compounds of the amine heads category reliable (without restriction) ready biodegradability test (OECD 301 D, closed bottle) are available. These studies demonstrate consistently for the category ready biodegradability including fulfilment of the 10-day window requirement and total nitrification.
