Biodegradation in water:

Key study:

The screening test on biodegradation in water (closed bottle test) according to OECD guideline 301D revealed a ready biodegradation for lithium bis(oxalato)borate. At least 60 % degradation was reached within the 10 days immediately following the attainment of 10 % biodegradation (10-day window). Except for a deviating difference of duplicate values of the reference substance at the end of the test (24 %), which was considered not to have affected the integrity of this study, all criteria for acceptability of the test were met. Therefore, this study was considered to be valid.

Supporting study:

The test substance lithium bis(oxalato)borate was found to be readily degradable under the present test conditions according to OECD guideline 301D. The abiotic degradation was the main cause of readily degradation in this study. However, another study confirms the ready biodegradability of Lithium bis(oxalato)borate through a biotic mechanism (key study: Notox, 2004).
