Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH regulation, testing for this end point is considered scientifically unjustified since there are mitigating factors indicating that aquatic toxicity is unlikely to occur as the substance is highly insoluble (solubility: 0.05445 mg/L at 25° C) in water as per the authorative handbook data source.

However, for the purpose of chemical safety assessment the predicted data from EPI suite has been considered.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
