Description of key information

The calculations by EPI Suite show, that quinidine is not readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The given biodegradability is calculated from BIOWIN 4.10 using the models BioWin3 and BioWin5. From the combined results it can be concluded, that the quinidine is not readily biodegradable. Nevertheless, the EPA recommends that EPI Suite is a screening-level tool and should not be used if acceptable measured values are available.
