Description of key information

A "Manometric Respirometry Test" was conducted by Bayer Industry Services GmbH (2007) in accordance with EU-Method C.4-D and OECD TG 301 F in order to assess the ready biodegradability of the test item. A suspension of the test item was inoculated and incubated for 28 d under aerobic conditions. During this period, degradation was followed by BOD determinations. After 28 days, 0.0% degradation was observed. Therefore, the test item is considered to be "not readily biodegradable".

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
