Endpoint:
hydrolysis
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is highly insoluble in water

Description of key information

The performance of a hydrolysis as a function of pH test is scientifically not justified. REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VIII, Sect.9.2, Col. 2, states as follows: “ 9.2.2.1: The study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable, or highly insoluble in water. ” Since the test substance ditetradecyl peroxydicarbonate is readily biodegradable and highly insoluble in water, testing of hydrolysis behaviour of the test substance is scientifically not justified.
