Description of key information

Additional information

The substance is not readily, but slightly inherent biodegradable according to a valid supporting inherent biodegradation test.

Data on the biodegradation in the sediment and soil compartments are not available. The test item hence should be considered as not biodegradable. The substance is hydrolytically stable under neutral and acidic environmental condition but shows a slight tendency for less stability in basic environments. Photodegradation in air is not a relevant degradation process for this substance since the test item has negligible vapour pressure and atmospheric release in form of fumes or aerosols is unlikely with regard to the identified use patterns. There is no information available about photodegradation of the substance in sediment or soil.

According to the screening criteria for bioaccumulation, the substance is not considered to be bioaccumulative. The estimated octanol-water partition coefficient for the substance is very low (log Kow < -2.7) which suggests also no potential for adsorption on soil or sediment.
