Description of key information

The structural anlog, 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate (EC No. 247-979-2/CAS No. 26761-45-5) was accessed for ready biodegradation potential in O.E.C.D. test guideline 301 B and 301 d studies.  This test substance was also evaluated for inherent biodegradability in an O.E.C.D. test guideline 302 C Modified MITI study.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The test substance, 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate, was not readily or inherently biodegradable under the conditions of the studies. Therefore, it is anticipated that the subject of this Registration, neononanoic acid glycidyl ester (CAS No. 144548-01-6) will not be biodegradable.
