Additional information

The test substance and terephthalic acid were found to fulfil the criteria for ready biodegradability in two OECD guideline studies (301B and 301C). These results indicate complete mineralisation without any significant metabolites or degradation products. Persistence of the substance in the environment is therefore not expected.
