Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

The two screening tests for biodegradation present contrasting results. The CO2 evolution test (modified sturm test) presents data showing no significant biodegradation of the test substance, whereas the closed bottle test presents data showing that the substance achieves >60 % biodegradation in the 10 -day window, indicating that the substance is readily biodegradable.

This chemical substance has a relatively high vapour pressure of 2080 Pa, indicating that it is in the upper range of the "medium volatility" band (see ECHA Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment Chapter R14). In accordance with OECD Guideline 301, it is not applicable to test volatile substances using the CO2 evolution method and methods with no headspace, such as the closed bottle test, are better suited for determining the biodegradability of volatile substances.

The data from the closed bottle test was therefore considered reliable in comparison with the CO2 evolution test and thus phosphinicocarboxylates, sodium salts, is considered readily biodegradable.
