Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Experimental data are available on the biodegradation potential of 2-[2-(dimethylamino)ethoxy]-N-methylethanamine (TMAEE; CAS 93240-93-8). In a study conducted according to OECD Guideline 301B (Ready Biodegradability: CO2 Evolution Test), degradation of the substance was reported to be 0% after 28 days based on CO2 evolution (BASF SE 2020, report no.: 22G0034/19G052). Domestic activated sludge was used as inoculum. The criteria for ready biodegradability were not reached.

It can be concluded, that TMAEE (CAS 93240-93-8) is not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
