Description of key information

The test substance is poorly biodegradable and poorly eliminated from water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the tested substance was determined to be 10 % at most in a OECD 301B study (CIBA-GEIGY 1986a). Since the inherent biodegradability of the compound was found to be 0 %, the substance is also poorly eliminated from water (CIBA-GEIGY 1993).
