Description of key information

Because of log Pow values well below 3, according to column 2 of Annex VIII and IX of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 no testing of adsorption-desorption behaviour of the members of the Montan waxes category is required. An adsorption/desorption screening test according to OECD 121 (HPLC estimation method) could not be expected to yield any reasonable information.

Therefore, no conclusion on adsorption/desorption behaviour of the Montan waxes category is possible from experimental data. Based on the low log Pow-values no relevant adsorption to soil or sediment is expected.
