Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Physico-chemical properties were determined from experimental testing.Some endpoints were waived, based on chemical structure.

The substance is liquid at ambient temperature, with low volatility.

In water, it is soluble, and slightly denser.

Despite the standardised test shows surface-active potential under the experimental conditions, it is not considered as a true surfactant, due to the chemical structure of the substance and observed behaviour of the substance in the water solubility and partition coefficient studies.

It has low potential for bioaccumulation.

It is NOT classified as dangerous with regard to physical hazards, based on CLP criteria.
