Additional information

Two proprietary studies on one of the streams 68476-55-1 (Huntington Life Science Limited (2004a) and ExxonMobil Biomedical Sciences Inc. (2005) in this category show them not to be readily biodegradable. This data will be read-across to all other category members. 

Structural analysis of the streams indicates that they are not expected to undergo hydrolysis due to the lack of hydrolysable functional groups. Experimental data is not available for any category members on bioaccumulation potential or Koc. In the absence of measured data the BCF and Koc of these streams has been calculated based on the measured/calculated log Kow for representative structures.
