The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Key study: Test method OECD 310. GLP study: Based on the read-across approach, dextro alpha fenchyl acetate was determined to be readily biodegradable under aerobic conditions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Key study: Read-across from experimental data on the analogue isobornyl acetate.

The ready biodegradability of the analogue isobornyl acetate was determined with a non adapted activated sludge over a test period of 28 days in the Headspace Test according to OECD Guideline 310. Test item was tested at 20 mg/l in triplicates (14.7 mg C/L). The biodegradation was followed by TIC analyses of the quantity of CO2 produced by the respiration of bacteria. The biodegradation of the test item was 76% after 28 days. The 10% level was reached after 3 days and the pass level of 60% after 7 days. All the validity criteria were met and isobornyl acetate was determined to be ready biodegradable. Based on these results the read-across approach was applied, and dextro alpha fenchyl acetate was also determined to be readily biodegradable.
