The ready biodegradability of Hexyl salicylate has been determined according to the OECD guideline 301F. In the conditions of the test, Hexyl salicylate undergoes 91 % biodegradation after 28 days. Biodegradation reaches 82 % at the end of the 10-day window (days 2 to 12).

Thus, Hexyl salicylate should be regarded as readily biodegradable according to this test.

At the concentration used in the test (100 mg/L), hexyl salicylate is not inhibitory to the micro-organisms
