Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VIII, the adsorption/desorption study (required in section 9.3.1) does not need to be conducted if the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. As the substance is readily biodegradable no testing is necessary. Furthermore, the substance has a log Kow value of 2.0. Adsorption / desorption testing can be omitted for substances with a log Kow < 3.

A Henry's Law constant of 0.746  Pa m3/mol at 20 °C was calculated according to ECHA Guidance R.16 (ECHA, 2016) indicating that the substance is expected to be slightly volatile from the water phase to the atmospheric compartment.
