One experimental study according to OECD 301D indicated that the substance is readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria. A degradation of 69% was recorded after 28 d meeting the 14-day window criterion. Since the substance is readily biodegradable hydrolysis is not considered to be a relevant degradation pathway in the environment. Moreover, the substance does not contain any hydrolysable groups and is considered to be hydrolytically stable. Considering the water solubility of 18.0 g/L and the negligible adsorption to organic soil and sediment particles (log Koc: 1.31 - 1.49, mean: 1.4, KOCWIN v2.00), the main compartment for environmental distribution is expected to be the water column. However, the Henry’s Law Constant of 1.39 Pa m³/mol at 20 °C indicates moderate potential for volatilization of the substance from the water phase to the atmospheric compartment.
