Abiotic degradation

The results of study about hydrolytic degradation ofBDPas a function of pH indicatethat BDPis stable in water at pH 4, 7 and 9 at 25ºC, with a half-lifemore thanone year.

Biotic degradation

Results from amodified MITItestonready biodegradability indicate that BDP is not readily biodegradable.
