Description of key information

The test substance is considered as not readily biodegradable, a biodegradation mean of 6% being reached at Day 28 in a test performed according to the OECD 301B testing guideline.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable

Additional information

A ready biodegradation test was carried out on test substance according to OECD 301B testing guideline and under GLP. Experimental results on the reference substance are compliant with the OECD Guideline requirements for ready biodegradability testing. The results of toxicity control confirmed that the substance was not inhibitory to microorganisms. The test substance achieved a biodegradation mean of 6% at Day 28.
