Description of key information

In a closed bottle test the test item showed 71 % biodegradation after 28 days (14 -d window passed), therefore it was considered to be readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The test substance in a mineral medium was inoculated with secondary effluent and incubated for 28 d under aerobic conditions in closed bottles (EU method C.4 -E). Based on determination of the content of dissolved oxygen (amount of oxygen taken up by the test chemical), a biodegradation of 71 % was determined after 28 days. Therefore the test substance was considered to be readily biodegradable.
