Description of key information

The test item 4-chloro-α,α,α-trifluorotoluene (PCBTF) has showed to be not ready biodegradable under the conditions applied in a Closed Bottle test, having not reached the pass level (60% biodegradation) during 28 days of incubation but showing a maximum biodegradation percentage of 19.2% at the end of test period.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

PCBTF was found to be not readily biodegradable by activated sludge microorganisms.
