Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

In a guideline (OECD 301D) and GLP ready biodegradability study, the substance gave a positive result (>60% degradation relative to the COD value) with a maximum of 76% biodegradation recorded on day 28. Whilst there is a significant lag time, the 10 day window is just met. It may therefore be concluded that there is a potential for ready biodegradation under environmental conditions.
