Description of key information

Additional information

Water:

The registered substance is stable in water, as it is not hydrolysed. However, it is readily biodegradable. Consequently, it is considered to not persist in the environment.

Soil:

In soil, the test substance is mineralised quickly to a high degree (Half life: max. 6.5h). Furthermore, due to its absorption/desorption, is has low to medium mobility in soil.

Based on the adsorption behaviour and the short half life of max 6.5 hours in soil, the translocation of the substance into deeper soil layers is extremely unlikely.

Sediment:

As the substance is readily biodegradable in water, it can be assumed that it is also biodegradable in sediment.
