Description of key information

Not ready biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental data on the substance in itself was available, thus a prediction was carried out by using a QSAR tool; data on Similar Substance 01 was also used as a supporting evidence. Details on the read across substance are available in section 13.

The target substance was predicted to be non ready biodegradable by EPI Suite v4.11.

In addition a BOD5/COD value of 0.01 was obtained using a sample of Similar Substance 01 with purity of 40 %. Experimetal procedures followed internal method A-15 and A-16, but no details were available.

Overall, the substance was considered as non ready biodegradable.
