Description of key information

Not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the test substance was measured to be 1 % after 29 days according to OECD Guideline 301B (Ready Biodegradability: CO2 Evolution Test, CIBA-GEIGY 1997). This result is supported by another ready biodegradability study according to OECD Guideline 301C in which no biodegradation was detected (Ready Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test I, CIBA-GEIGY 1997).
