The ready biodegradability of the test item was assessed over a 28 day period by the modified Sturm test (OECD 301B). The nominal test concentrations were 11.1 and 20.5 mg/L. The test material attained up to 26 and 1 % biodegradation after 28 days whereas the positive control substance (Aniline) was 84.3 % degraded after 28 days. These results indicate that the test item cannot be classified readily biodegradable under conditions of the test.

The test substance was found to be poorly biodegradable in an OECD 301B study. It is assumed that the results of simulation studies would not reveal any different findings. Therefore, simulation studies in water/sediment and soil are not provided.
