Additional information

The test substance was found to be readily biodegradable in a guideline study according to OECD guideline 301C. The TOC removal was measured to be 100 % whereas the BOD (NH3) was determined to be 85 % (JETOC 1992). These results are substantiated by a guideline study according to OECD 302B (BASF 1981).
