PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

2,2'-isopropylidenebis(p-phenyleneoxy)diethanol is not readily biodegradable. It has however a low potential for bioaccumulation according to its log Kow < 3. Therefore, 2,2'-isopropylidenebis(p-phenyleneoxy)diethanol is considered not PBT and not vPvB according to criteria laid out under annex XIII of REACh regulation EC 1907/2006.


 


In addition, the biotic degradation products of the registered substance were identified via the in silico tool EAWAG-BBD Pathway Prediction System, and their P and B properties were screened via US EPA EPISUITE. None of the degradation products fulfilled PBT/vPvB criteria.
