Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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.

Description of key information

Experimental determination of biodegradation in soil is scientifically unjustified due to the instability of Sodium perborate against hydrolysis and the low potential for adsorption. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental results are available on the degradation of sodium perborate in soil. It has to be assumed, however, that due to the nature of the compound a significant decomposition can be expected in all environmental compartments, where a viable microflora and/or catalytic materials (e.g. metals, enzymes) are present.
