Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The test substance is not inherently biodegradable under the conditions of the modified Zahn-Wellens test (OECD 302B).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The test substance was tested for inherent biodegradation in a modified Zahn-Wellens test according to OECD 302B. A significant biological degradation was not noted. The DOC-removal with three different sludge types was consistently below 10 % after 28 days.

This result is in line with the results from a (non-reliable) study investigating BOD5 and COD of the test item. The BOD5 = 26.3 % COD, thus the test item is not considered readily biodegradable.
