Description of key information

An OECD 301D ready biodegradation study is available for p-diisopropylbenzene, a stuctural isomer analog.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

An OECD 301D ready biodegradation study was conducted on p-diisopropylbenze, a structural isomer analog. The results of that study showed only 3% degradation over 28 days. The substance exhibits a low potential for biodegradation. However, the lack of degradation exhibited in the ready biodegradation study may be affected by the low water solubility of the substance, 0.0405 mg/L.
