Description of key information

Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no or minor deviations from standard test guidelines and/or minor methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results. The study report was conclusive, done to a valid guideline and the study was conducted under GLP conditions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The test item attained 6% degradation after 28 days and therefore cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable under the strict terms and conditions of OECD Guideline No. 301B.

One key study is available for degradation (OECD Guideline 301 B (Ready Biodegradability: CO2 Evolution Test) and the test item attained 6% degradation after 28 days. Therefore, the substance cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable under the strict terms and conditions of OECD Guideline No. 301B.
