Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

2 -Morpholinoethanol (CAS 622 -40 -2) is not readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria) following a weight-of-evidence approach. The following results were considered:

- BASF AG (1985): OECD 302B, industrial activated sludge: < 10% after 28 d: poorly eliminated from water

- CATALOGIC v5.11.17, model BOD 28 days MITI [OECD 301C] v8.12: 3% after 28 d: not readily biodegradable (in applicability domain)

- CATALOGIC v5.11.17, model CATALOGIC Kinetic [OECD 301F] v13.16: 25% after 28 d: not readily biodegradable (in applicability domain)
