Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

One study investigating the ready biodegradability of the test substance is available. In this GLP study (Neuhahn, 2010), which was conducted according to OECD Guideline 301F (manometric respirometry), activated sludge (domestic, non-adapted) was used as inoculum and the test item concentration was 100 mg/L. After 28 days (end of test period) the substance was degraded to 6%. Thus, the test substance is not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
