Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the results of a test according to OECD guideline 302B (industrial sludge), the QSAR-estimates and results from the analogous test compound DMDC (CAS 6864-37-5) biodegradation cannot be expected for PACM in the environment. This finding is supported by the chemical structure of the substance which indicates a low potential for biodegradation. Therefore, no further tests on biodegradation are performed because it is not expected that further testing will significantly change this assessment.
