Description of key information

The inherent biodegradation and ready biodegradation was investigated according to OECD 302B and 301B test guidelines respectively

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The substance attained 4% biodegradation after 28 days and therefore cannot be considered as readily biodegradable under the strict terms and conditions of OECD Guideline No. 301F.

The substance attained 8% biodegradation after 28 days. OECD Guideline No. 302B and therefore provides limited evidence of inherent, primary biodegradation under the experimental conditions employed in this study.
