Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
Stability experiments: the decline of the concentration in non-aerated standardized medium
(Canton and Slooff 1982) was studied at room temperature (25 °C); the analytical analysis was
performed using gas chromatography or high-pressure liquid chromatography.
