Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 biodegradability of 2 -[2 -(3 -aminopropoxy)ethoxy]ethanol (CAS 112 -33 -4) was assessed in an OECD 301B test under enhanced conditions (BASF SE, 2012; report no. 29G0790/11G137). The inoculum was activated sludge from a municipal wastewater treatment plant treating predominantly domestic sewage. After 28 d, the substance was degraded to 15% (CO2/ThCO2). After 49 d, the value reached 74% and after 60 d of exposure, the substance was degraded by 100%. Therefore, the substance is assessed to be not readily biodegradable but inherently biodegradable.
