Additional information

Several studies are available for the biodegradation assessment of the test substance. Two ready biodegradability GLP studies according to OECD 301F (BASF AG 01/0109/26/1, 2002) and OECD 301A (BASF AG 95/0601/21/1, 1995) demonstrate the ready biodeagradability of the test item. Furthermore, these results are substantiated by two inherent biodegradability studies according to OECD 302B (BASF AG 95/0601/10/1 and 95/0601/10/2, both conducted in 1995) in which a DOC-removal greater than 90 % was measured (adsorption after 3 hours was less than 10 %).
