No determination was possible according to Method C7 Abiotic Degradation, Hydrolysis as a Function of pH of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008 and Method 111 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals, 13 April 2004 for the following reasons:

  • The test material has been determined to be essentially insoluble in water.
  • The test material is a mixture; the test is not appropriate for mixtures.

An assessment of hydrolytic stability was attempted using the computer-based estimation software, HYDROWIN, version 2.00, © 2000 US Environmental Protection Agency. However, the software could not estimate the rate constants for the test material.

Ready biodegradation studies have shown that the material does degrade by abiotic means i.e. hydrolysis, although the rate of hydrolysis is not provided by these studies.
