Description of key information

The test substance is not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. It is poorly biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a ready biodegradability test according to OECD guideline 301B a maximum CO2 evolution of 6% was observed (CIBA - GEIGY 1989). This result is supported by the results of a MITI test (MITI 1992). Therefoe, the test item is not readily biodegradable.
