Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VIII, the study on hydrolysis, required in section 9.2.2.1., does not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable. However, as any ester, methyl salicylate is subject to hydrolysis to form the corresponding acid and alcohol, that is salicylic acid and methanol.
