Description of key information

The substance is classified as "not ready biodegradable". The substance exhibits inherent (primary) biodegradability, and therefore is not expected to persist indefinitely in the environment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable, fulfilling specific criteria

Additional information

Biodegradation in water was tested in two screening studies according to OECD 301F (ready biodegradability) and OECD 302B (inherent biodegradability). The substance showed 22% biodegradability in the first test (Brixham Environmental Laboratory, 2009) and 84% biodegradability in the second test (Brixham Environmental Laboratory, 2010) . Although the substance is classified as "not ready biodegradable", it exhibits inherent (primary) biodegradability, and therefore is not expected to persist indefinitely in the environment.
