Description of key information

Stability

Hydolysis

Based on the chemical structure of the test item, hydrolysis is not expected. This statement is supported with literature data - Harris (1990), Kollig et al. (1993) and Boethling & Mackay (2000).

Biodegradation

Biodegradation in water: screening test

The ready biodegradability of the test item was determined according to OECD 301 D (reference 5.2.1-1). Within the study period of 28 days, a degradation of 1 % was determined for the test substance. Therefore, the test substance cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable.

Transport and distribution

Adsorption / desorption

The adsorption coefficient of the test item was determined according to the HPLC-method (reference 5.4.1-1) described in guideline 67/548/EEC, annex C.19 and OECD 121 (2001). The adsorption coefficient of the test item was found to be: log Koc: 1.66.
