Description of key information

Ester G is designated as not readily biodegradable in a test according ot OECD 301C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

From the degradability results based on the BOD (av. 52%) and that of the residual amount of the test substance (av. 69%), it can be concluded that the test substance is not readily biodegradable. No transformation product is generated under the conditions of this test.

Since all criteria for acceptability of the test were met, this study was considered to be valid.

In conclusion, Ester G is designated as not readily biodegradable.
