Description of key information

The substance has been shown to be readily degradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Ready biodegradability was tested measuring the oxygen consumpion both via an automatic oxygen consumption analyzer and a Gas Chromatography detector FID.

Nominal initial test substance concentration was 25 µg/ml.

The test substance achieved mean degradations of 68.6% by day 28, based on measurement with the oxygen consumption analyzer, and of 91% by day 28 based on measurement with gas chromatpgraphy detector FID.
