Description of key information

One key study is presented. This study demonstrates that the test substance Cyclic trimethylolpropane formal (CTF) has been found to the readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The test substance 5-ethyl-1,3-dioxane-5-methanol has been found to the readily biodegradable with >90% removal after 28 days in both the key and supporting studies. As such removal in the environment is expected to be rapid and complete.
