Description of key information

The ready biodegradability was evaluated by Hüls AG (1993) in a DOC-DIE AWAY Test according to EU-method C.4-A . The DOC removal following inocolation with activated sludge was measured at defined sampling intervals. The mean biodegradability derived from the DOC-DIE AWAY Test was 8% indicating that the test item is not ready biodegradable. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
