Description of key information

The substance is determined to be poorly biodegradable in a study according to OECD 301B. Comparable degradation rates are expected for biodegradation in soil. In addition, a biodegradation in soil does need not to be conducted, if the substance can be expected to have a low potential for adsorption: A log kow of 1.78 was determined which indicates low potential for adsorption to soil (log kow <3; following REACh guidance Document R7.1.15.4). Additionally, the substance has no cationic properties and the calculated logKoc of 2.77 also indicates low potential for adsorption to solid soil (following Table R.7.11-2, REACh-Guidance Documents). Thus, a study on biodegradation in soil needs not to be conducted.
