Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties were determined from experimental testing, except Partition Coefficient, and Explosive properties, that were derived from a structural analogue (racemate of stereoisomers).

Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure.

The substance is a liquid at ambient temperature, with low volatility.

In water, it is slightly soluble and less dense (i.e. excess will floate), and with no surface-active properties.

It has potential for bioaccumulation and aquatic chronic toxicity, based on CLP criteria.

It is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.

Some parameters may vary slightly depending on the composition.
