Administrative data

Description of key information

Stability

Hydrolysis

A study is technically not feasible because only a general photometric but no substance specific analytical method is available. Experience in handling and use (the substance is marketed as an aqueous formulation) shows that the test item is stable in water.

Biodegredation

Biodegradation in water: screening tests

The test item, Blue Sema, was considered to be not readily biodegradable (11.8 % biodegradation on day 28). According to the test guidelines the pass level for ready biodegradability is 60 % of COD.

Transport and distribution

Adsorption / desorption

A low potential for adsorption is expected due to the negative low Pow of the test item. Thus, an experimental study is not required. Moreover, such a study would not be technically feasible because only a general photometric but no substance specific analytical method is available for the test item.
