Description of key information

Not readily or inherently biodegradable.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

In a ready biodegradability study (OECD Guideline 301B), the mean percent theoretical CO2 produced by the test substance reached 9.2% by day 29. The mean percentage biodegradation of the test substance in an inherent biodegradation study (OECD Guideline 302C) was 9.42% by day 28. The substance is therefore considered neither readily nor inherently biodegradable.
