Description of key information

The substance is not readily biodegradable; however, the substance can be rapidly degraded after adaptation of the inoculum to the substance.

The metabolites were predicted using a QSAR model. Only one metabolite is relevant with regard to the PBT assessment with an estimated quantity of ≥ 0.1% (for details see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). The relevant metabolite was calculated to be not readily biodegradable (1% after 28 d, based on BOD). 

No data are available on degradation rates in surface water and sediment; therefore, the substance is regarded as P/vP from a precautionary point of view.
