Additional information

For the mixture alcohol C12-C18 ethoxylates, CAS 68213-23-0, no biodegradation study is available. Thus, a category read-across to the GLP-study conducted with alcohol C12 -14 ethoxylates (CAS 68439-50 -9) according to OECD 301F and C.4 -D, is made (Junghans, Kolb, 2008). In this study, for the alcohol ethoxylate mixture C12 -C14 ethoxylated with 1EO, biodegradation of 95% was reported after 28 days of exposure. The substance is described as readily biodegradable.
