Description of key information

The substance itself is relatively quickly removed from the water compartment (most likely via hydrolysis pathway) under test conditions. The formed transformation product shows a higher stability and prolonged half-time in the environment. As the findings in both test concentrations show a significant different result and currently there is no explanation available, the higher half-time is used in the assessment. Further investigations in sediments are considered unnecessary, because of the rapid degradation of the parent compound and the major transformation product shows a good solubility in water and a low partition coefficient in QSAR estimations.
