Additional information

Aerobic and anaerobic degradation studies in water/sediment systems were conducted for Dow Elanco (1995). A half-life of 14.3 days was determined indicating that the chemical rapidly dissipates from the environment due to degradation in surface water/sediment. The major identified metabolite was (2-oxopropyl)diisopropanolamine.

The anaerobic degradation in a water/sediment system demonstrated that the test substance was not degraded during an observation time of 6 months.
