Description of key information

Additional information

Based on the available information on the environmental fate and pathways, it can be concluded that the substance:

- is hydrolytically stable at pH 7 and 9, but is susceptible to hydrolysis at pH 4

- did not show a significant degree of degradation in a ready biodegradability test (< 10%)

- has a low tendency for adsorption to soil (log Koc = 1.48)

- has a low tendency for evaporation from the water phase (HLC = 6.19E-004 Pa-m3/mole at 25°C)

Therefore, it has to be assumed that the substance will not be biodegraded to a relevant amount in the environment and the persistence in the environment has to be expected.

Taking into account the substance's high water solubility (1200 mg/L), the low volatility from the water phase and the low log Koc value, it can be assumed that the substance will mainly partition into the water phase.
