Biodegradation in water: screening tests

Isobutyric acid has been shown to be readily biodegradable as combined evidence from two biodegradation tests

1. - test similar to OECD TG 302 B (Hoechst AG, undated; RL2; KS)

2. - test similar to OECD TG 301 E (Henkel KGaA, 1983; RL3; WoE)

 

Biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation tests

Tests need not be conducted, as isobutyric acid is readily biodegradable.

 

Biodegradation in soil

Tests need not be conducted, as isobutyric acid is readily biodegradable.

 

Mode of degradation in actual use

Data for mode of degradation in actual use are not required under REACH.
