Description of key information

The read-across substance 2-oxepanone, polymer with 1,4-butanediol has been found to be readily biodegradable with 60% degradation within 7 days when incubated at a concentration of 10 mg/L and 42% degradation when incubated at a concentration of 20 mg/L. On the basis of this result, the substance was classified as readily biodegradable.

Additional information

The basic physico-chemical properties and chemical structural of the source substance 2-oxepanone, polymer with 1,4-butanediol and the target substance 2-oxepanone, polymer with 1,6-hexanediol are considered to be sufficiently similar to support a read-across approach.
