Executive summary:

The ready biodegradability of the test item Carbamic acid, N-(3-(,triethoxysilypropyI)2-(ethyI-(4- nitrosophenyl) amina) ethyl ester (CAS number 1195231-94-7) was determined with a non-adapted activated sludge over a test period of 28 days in the Modified Sturm Test.

The study was conducted from 2013-08-08 to 2013-09-06 according to OECD 301 B at DR.U.NOACK- LABORATORIEN.

The test item was tested at a concentration of 20.0 mg/L with 2 replicates, corresponding to a carbon content (TOC) of 10.9 mg C/L in the test vessels. The test vessels were incubated at low Iight conditions and at a temperature of 21.0 -24.0 °C.

The biodegradation of the test item was followed by titrimetric analysis of the quantity of CO2 produced by the respiration of bacteria. The degradation was stopped on day 28 by acidificatian of the test solutions. The last titration was made on day 29, after residual CO2 had been purged from the test solutions over a period of 24 hours. The percentage CO2 production was calculated in relation to the theoretical CO2 production (ThCO2) of the test item. The biodegradation was calculated for each titration time.

To check the activity of the test system, sodium benzoate was used as functional control. The percentage degradation of the functional control reached the pass level of 60 % after 10 days and a biodegradation af 70% after 28 days.

In the toxicity control containing both test and reference item a biodegradation of 39 % was determined within 14 days and it came to 46 % after 28 days. The biodegradation of the reference item was not inhibited by the test item in the toxicity control.

The biodegradation of the test item is shown graphically in Figure 1 in comparison to the readily degradable functional control and the toxicity control. The biodegradation was slowly and the mean 10 % level (beginning of biodegradation) was only reached on day 28.
