Additional information

In accordance with Section 2 of REACH Annex XI, the biodegradation in soil simulation study (required in Section 9.2.1.3) does not need to be conducted on the grounds that it is technically not feasible due to the high volatility of the substance (boiling point = 27°C, measured; vapour pressure = 79000 Pa at 20°C) and its slight solubility in water (water solubility = 33 mg/l, predicted). In addition, the high vapour pressure and the slight solubility in water indicate that exposure of the terrestrial compartment will be minimal.
