Description of key information

A test on ready biodegradability was conducted according to OECD Guideline 301 F

(Ready Biodegradability: Manometric Respirometry Test).  After 28 days the test item showed 1 % degradation. Therefore the test substance is not ready biodegradable.
A test on inherent biodegradability was conducted according to OECD Guideline 302 C (Inherent Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test (II)). Within 28 days a degradation rate of 5 % was determined for the test substance. Therefore the test substance is considered to be "Not Inherently Biodegradable".

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

According to the available biodegradation results the substance is not readily and inherently biodegradable.
