Ready Biodegradability Prediction: (YES or NO)

----------------------------------------------

Criteria for the YES or NO prediction: If the Biowin3 (ultimate survey

model) result is "weeks" or faster (i.e. "days", "days to weeks", or

"weeks" AND the Biowin5 (MITI linear model) probability is >= 0.5, then

the prediction is YES (readily biodegradable). If this condition is not

satisfied, the prediction is NO (not readily biodegradable). This method

is based on application of Bayesian analysis to ready biodegradation data

(see Help). Biowin5 and 6 also predict ready biodegradability, but for

degradation in the OECD301C test only; using data from the Chemicals

Evaluation and Research Institute Japan (CERIJ) database.

At any of the time points mentioned in the TG-318, the influence of Ca and pH is critical. Regardless of pH, the pigment is categorized at the 24h-sampling time as “unstable” in 10 mM Ca, representing high water hardness. The same “instable” categorization can be applied for any media at pH 4.

After 6h at pH 7 and higher and 0 or 1 mM Ca, the majority of the samples showed high dispersion stability. Only the sample at pH 7 and 1 mM Ca showed 88.3% stability which should therefore be rated as intermediate-high stability. At high Ca concentrations of 10 mM the stability was generally low regardless of the pH value.

In general two effects can be observed. A pH-dependent effect with low stability at low pH values and high stability at higher pH values and a Ca-dependent effects showing lower stability at higher Ca levels. Regarding the environmental relevance the substance is treated as high stability.

Executive summary:

The dispersion stability of the pigment is high and depends especially on water hardness and pH. Only in very hard water with 10 mM Ca and/or under acidic conditions, the dispersion stability is low.
