Screening for ready biodegradability was performed by the closed bottle test.(-)-Beta-pinene is readily biodegradable according to the criteria of the OECD 301 guideline.
Key study conducted according to OECD 301 D
Guideline and GLP without deviation.
(-)-Beta-Pinene was tested at a
concentration of 2 mg/L. The inoculum was domestic activated sewage
sludge. Degradation was assessed by measurement of oxygen consumption.
Alpha pinene and delta 3 carene, which are
structurally similar compounds, were also found to be readily
biodegradable according to OECD 301 criteria.
