Description of key information

No data are available on the biodegradation of 2,2,3-trimethylbutane. Based on a category approach data are read-across to hydrocarbons, C7-C9, isoalkanes.

The data show that hydrocarbons, C7-C9, isoalkanes is not readily biodegradable, but can demonstrate high extents of biodegradability when test durations are extended. Thus, hydrocarbons, C7-C9, isoalkanes is not expected to persist in the environment under aerobic conditions.
