Readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The key study was conducted according to OECD guideline 301 F. After 2.6 days degradation of 10% of the test substance was reached. The 60% pass level was already achieved after 3 days. These results demonstrate, that the test substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria (Dow Chemicals, 1998).
