Ready Biodegradability of bis(2,3-epoxypropyl)cyclohexane-1,2-dicarboxylate in a Manometric Respirometry Test
In first study, the substance was tested for its ready biodegradability
in the CO2 Evolution Test (Modified Sturm Test) at ca. 42 mg / 2L,
corresponding to approx 12 mg TOC / L. The relative degradation values
calculated from the measurement of the CO2 formation during the test
period of 28 days revealed no significant degradation (4.9% in bottle A
and 2.6% in bottle B). The substance was found not readily
biodegradable.The toxicity test showed that there is no inhibition of
the degradation of sodium acetate by the test substance. Therefore,
bis(2,3 -epoxypropyl)cyclohexane-1,2 -can be considered to be inherently
In a second study, the ready biodegradability was tested in a
Manometric Respirometry Test. The criterion for ready biodegradability
under the conditions of a manometric respirometry test is the 10-day
window, describing the period between reaching at least 10% degradation
and 60% degradation. This period should not exceed 10 days.
The mean biodegradation after 28 days of bis(2,3
-epoxypropyl)cyclohexane-1,2 -dicarboxylate was 53% (ThODNH4)
and 94% after 60 days; the 10 day window criterion was not passed.
Whilst bis(2,3 -epoxypropyl)cyclohexane-1,2 -dicarboxylate cannot
be considered to be readily biodegradable under the strict terms and
conditions of OECD Guideline No. 301F, the evidence of aerobic
degradation (94%) that did not plateau before the end of the 60-day
indicate the potential for complete mineralisation in the environment.
