Additional information

Ready biodegradability of Amines, bis(hydrogenated tallow alkyl) methyl has been investigated through OECD Guideline 301 D, modified according to the recommendations of ECETOC (1985) or Blok et al. using emulsifier.

Activated sludge were cultured for 28 days in presence of Amines, bis(hydrogenated tallow alkyl) methyl.

More than 86% biodegradation of test substance occured after 28 days. The substance was considered to be readily biodegradable.
