Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the test item was determined in a 28 days MITI-test according to OECD guideline 301C. The test substance was tested in a concentration of 100 mg/L, the reference substance sodium benzoate was also tested in a concentration of 100 mg/L. After 28 days, the test item was not biodegradated (0 % biodegradation), the reference substance was biodegradated to 89 %.

From the results of the OECD 301C study, the test substance was classified to be poorly biodegradable. It is assumed that the results of simulation studies would not reveal any different findings. Therefore, simulation studies in water/sediment and soil are not provided.
