Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

In the key study (SEPC, 1993a), the substance attained 28% degradation in 28 days in a modified Sturm CO2 evolution test, conducted according to OECD test guideline 301B. In two BOD tests, no degradation was recorded.
