Physical & Chemical properties

Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties of the substance were determined from experimental testing. Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure.

The substance is a liquid at ambient temperature, with low volatility.

In water, it is slightly soluble, less dense, with no surface-active properties anticipated (i.e. excess will floate).

It has low potential for bioaccumulation and aquatic chronic toxicity, based on CLP criteria.

It is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.
