Description of key information

Within 28 days, a degradation rate of 21 % was determined. The test item is considered to be "Not readily biodegradable". 
Within 28 days a degradation of 81 % was determined according to the OECD Guideline 302 C. Therefore the test item is considered to be "inherently biodegradable".

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Inherent Biodegradation:

The amount of the substance could be on the experimental accompanying DOC analysis detected only in part. This is probably an immediate absorption of the biomass used. The eliminated by adsorption portion of the test substance was not taken into account in the calculation of the degradation.
