Description of key information

Additional information

Studies on the biodegradation of the substance are not available. The presented data refer to a structural analogue of the substance.

It can be concluded from the available screening tests performed with the structural analogue that the substance exhibits inherent (primary) biodegradability, and is therefore not expected to persist indefinitely in the environment


In an OECD 301F (manometric ready biodegradability) study on Ethyleneamine, propoxylated, 9% mineralisation after 28 days was observed based on oxygen consumption (Bayer, 1993). The substance exhibited inherent (primary) biodegradability in OECD 302/302B, EU C.4.D/C.9; mineralisation was ranging from 20 -36% after 28 days based on DOC removal (Bayer AG, 2002). Comparable degradation rates are exptected for CAS 102-60-3.
