Description of key information

Biodegradation potential predicted from scientifically valid (Q)SAR models: readily biodegradable (Kovarich, 2014)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

For the determination of the degradability of Tetradecylamine in water, one data is reported from (Q)SAR predictions based on three scientifically valid models: EPISuite/BIOWIN, Toxtree/START Biodegradability and VEGA/Ready Biodegradability. Those models fulfil the characterisation criteria specified in the OECD Guidance Document on the validation of (Q)SAR models.

Tetradecylamine is predicted to be readily biodegradable; this prediction is considered reliable with restrictions (Klimisch 2) and is used as key value for the assessment.
