Description of key information

An adsorption/desorption study is not required because bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate mineralizes rapidly (Annex VIII point 9.3.1 column 2).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to the standard information requirements in Annex VIII point 9.3.1 column 2, an adsorption/desorption study is not required if the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. Bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is estimated to be readily biodegradable and hence to mineralise to CO2 and water in a standard MITI test (OECD test guideline 301C) by the BIOWIN model. An adsorption/desorption study does not have to be conducted for bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate.
