Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

C16-18 (evennumbered, C18 unsaturated) alkyl bis(2-hydroxyethyl) amine oxide is readily biodegradable and does not contain hydrolysable covalent bonds. Cleavage of a carbon-nitrogen bond under environmental conditions is only possible with a carbonyl group adjacent to the nitrogen atom. Degradation of C16-18 (evennumbered, C18 unsaturated) alkyl bis(2-hydroxyethyl) amine oxide through hydrolysis is therefore not considered.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
