Description of key information

The test item was tested using a nominal concentration of 40 mg organic carbon/L in test medium following OECD 301A and EU-Guideline C.4-A.
Aniline was chosen as reference item.
Activated sludge was used as inoculum (concentration in the test 25.1 mg dry matter/L). The test was left running for 28 days.
All validity criteria were met. Degradation of the reference item was 94.7 % after three days.
10-day-window: not detected
degradation at the end of the test: none
Therefore 1 H-Tetrazol-5-amine-, N-1H-tetrazol-5-yl-, monoammonium salt is considered as not readily biodegradable following OECD 301A/EU C.4-A.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Data obtained from a guideline study according to OECD guideline 301A and therefore considered reliable without restrictions.
