Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Based on existing information sourced from the scientific and regulatory literature it is concluded that hydrolysis testing is not necessary for the lithium borate substances in this category approach. These substances are expected to form boric acid if exposed to water or moist soils in the environment. Boric acid is extremely stable and is not susceptible to hydrolysis in environmental media.  No further testing is therefore required.

For both the endpoints, biodegradation in water and adsorption/desorption, a study is not technically possible for an inorganic substance or mineral salt test item such as the UVCB-Reaction products of boric acid and lithium hydroxide. No testing has therefore been conducted.
