Additional information

Effects on soil microorganisms are not anticipated. In aquatic toxicity testing, activated sludge (sewage treatment plant micro-organisms) do not appear to be affected by siloxanes. However, a nitrogen transformation test (OECD TG 216) has been proposed with D5 as per guidance (ECHA R.7c).
