Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, simulation tests of biodegradation in water and sediment do not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable.

A value has been calculated using a Fugacity model according to Mackay, Level III using EPIWIN (v.4.11)
