Description of key information

The substance is readily biodegradable fulfilling the 10-day window criterion.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The assessment of biotic degradation of isobutyl vinyl ether was investigated in a GLP test according to OECD guideline 310 using municipal activated sludge as inoculum (BASF 2004, 2018). After 28 days a TIC/ThIC removal of 68 +/- 8% was measured with the 10 -day window was fulfilled (68% TIC/ThIC removal at the end of the 10 -day window). Hence, isobutyl vinyl ether is readily biodegradable.
