Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 biodegradability of the test substance was examined in a "CO2 Evolution test" according to EU-Method C.5 (Hüls AG 1993) and Draft OECD-Guideline "301 B CO2 Evolution-Test" . CO2 was bound in aqueous NaOH solution and was measured at various timepoints over a period of 28 days. The test item was observed to be "not readily biodegradable" under the present test conditions (29% biodegradation within 28 days).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Although the test has to be classified as not readily biodegradable a significant degradation potential was observed.
