Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Biodegradation: Readily biodegradable but failing the 10-day window

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable but failing 10-day window

Additional information

Ready biodegradability has been determined with a non adapted activated sludge in the Modified Sturm test. The substance reached the 10% level (beginning of biodegradation) after 9 days. The test item did not reach the 60% pass level within the 10-day-window, but after 24 days. The substance is regarded, as a minimum, as inherently biodegradable and can be regarded as readily biodegradable though failing the 10 -day window criterium..

With adapted sludge, primary degradation in excess of 99% occurred over 28 days and ultimate degradation, measured as CO2 evolution, was 76% after 28 days.
