Description of key information

Additional information

4-tert-Butylcyclohexanol is ready biodegradable. The potential of the substance to persist in the environment is thus not given. Abiotic degradation like hydrolysis and photolysis is not expected to be an relevant process in case of 4-tert-butylcyclohexanol. Bioaccumulation of the substance cannot be excluded due to its log Pow > 3. Due to the calculated log Koc < 3, adsorption to soil particles is not expected.
