Description of key information

Key study: Test method OECD 301F and EU Method C.4-D. GLP study. The substance is not readily biodegradable under the test conditions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Key study: The determination of the ready biodegradability of the substance in an aerobic aqueous medium with manometric respirometry method was carried out according to OECD 301F and EU C.4-D Method (GLP study). After correction, for oxygen uptake for interference by the blank inoculum control, the biodegradation of test item on 28th test day was 49.1%. The substance is therefore, not readily biodegradable under test conditions. At the 14th day, in the toxicity test, the biodegradation was equal to 44.6% and the test item could not be assumed to be inhibitory.
