Description of key information

Photodegradation in water is not expected to be an important fate path in the aquatic environment as the substance hydrolyses rapidly forming maleic acid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Photodegradation in water is not expected to be an important fate path in the aquatic environment as the substance hydrolyses rapidly forming maleic acid. Maleic acid is readily biodegraded. Therefore, this endpoint is not considered in the assessment of the substance.
