Isodecyl benzoate is readily biodegradable (77.7% biodegradation in 28 days), and does meet the 10-day window based on results from a standard OECD ready biodegradation test guideline.

Studies are not available to assess the biodegradability of isodecyl benzoate in sediment. Although there are no data specifically for the benzoate, there are biodegradation data for the structurally similar mono-isodecyl phthalate that showed an average half-life of 25 hours in marine sediments under aerobic conditions based on results from two studies (Otton et al., 2008).
