Description of key information

Additional information

2-Propanol, 1,1’-[[3-[(3-Aminopropyl)Amino]Propyl]Imino]Bis-, N-Tallow Alkyl Derivatives biodegradation potential has been assessed in the frame of two OECD 301 tests carried out according to GLP procedures. The results indicate that the substance is not readily biodegradable.

No additional test is proposed to better characterize behaviour and biodegradation profile of this substance.

Indeed, in the REACH Guidance this is indicated that for adsorptive substances, a lower degradation rate is generally expected in soil than in water-phase due to partly immobilization caused by sorption.

2-Propanol, 1,1’-[[3-[(3-Aminopropyl)Amino]Propyl]Imino]Bis-, N-Tallow Alkyl Derivatives is a

cationic surfactant and thus sorbs easily to negatively charged surfaces. There is no principal difference between soil and sediments considering the sorption properties. Therefore, further testing in soil and sediment are not expected to deliver more information on the biodegradation of this substance. In adddition, these tests will be technically not feasible with this UVCB substance.
