Additional information

There is no study available investigating the ready biodegradability of Potassium (Z)-N-methyl-N-(1-oxo-9-octadecenyl) aminoacetate (CAS 76622-74-7). In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI, 1.5 a read-across to the structurally related source substance (Z)-N-methyl-N-(1-oxo-9-octadecenyl)glycine (CAS 110-25-8) was conducted. This read-across is justified in detail within the analogue justification in IUCLID Section 13.

The study with the read-across substance (Z)-N-methyl-N-(1-oxo-9-octadecenyl)glycine (CAS 110-25-8) was conducted according to the OECD guideline 301B using non-adapted activated sludge from a municipal waste water treatment plant. 20 mg/L test substance (based on TOC) was inoculated with 25 mg/L domestic, non-adapted activated sludge for 28 d under aerobic conditions and aeration with CO2-free air. Inoculum blanks, an abiotic sterile control and a toxicity control were run in parallel. CO2 was trapped in bottles containing 0.25 M NaOH solution and the evolution of CO2 concentration was followed by TOC analysis in regular intervals. After 28 d incubation, the test item was degraded by 85.2% in terms of CO2 evolution.

Based on the available results from a structurally related read-across substance (in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex XI, 1.5) which is characterized by a similar ecotoxicological profile and comparable structure, it can be concluded that Potassium (Z)-N-methyl-N-(1-oxo-9-octadecenyl) aminoacetate (CAS 76622-74-7) can be expected to be readily biodegradable according to the OECD guideline criteria.
