The ready biodegradability of
citronellyl acetate was tested in three different studies. Two were
performed according to OECD guidelines 301 B and 301 F, respectively
using activated sludge as inoculum. At test termination after 28 days
Unilever reported a degradation rate of 82.1 % and the 10-day window
criteria was fulfilled. However, due to technical deficiencies, both
studies have been disregarded. To cover the information requirements, a
third study on ready biodegradability according to OECD guideline 310
(Headspace Test) for testing volatile substances was performed. The
degree of biodegradation after an exposure period of 28 days was 93 ± 7
%. The results in this study are consistent with all validity criteria
and the test is valid according to the guideline of this study.
Accordingly, citronellyl acetate is considered readily biodegradable
according to OECD criteria.
