Description of key information

The test item was tested in the Sapromat-test (OECD 301 F). After 28 d the degradation reached 75% COD. Therefore the test item is consideed to be readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The test item was tested in the Sapromat-test (OECD 301 F). After 28 d the degradation reached 75% COD. Since the substance is a mixture of homologues (different C-chain distribution of C16, C18,..C22) it can therefore be considered to be readily biodegradable.
