Physical & Chemical properties

Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties of the substance were determined from experimental testing. Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure.

The substance is a dense solid at ambient temperature, with very low volatility. In water, it is very soluble, with no surface-active potential. Ionisation may occur at very low pH.

It has low potential for bioaccumulation.

It decomposes upon heating, but it is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.
