Phenol as well as acetophenone, key components of "acetophenone fraction" (CAS No.101316 -44 -3) are readily biodegradable. These two components account for about 70 to more than 80 % of the total mixture. The remainder is mainly composed of low-molecular alkyl-substituted aromatic compounds which are assumed to be at least inherently biodegradable.
