Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

biodegradation in water: simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
Diglyme is not readily but inherently biodegradable after 29 days. It is not expected that the DT50 of Diglyme in an OECD 309 would indicate a rapid biodegradation in surface water e.g. < 40 d. Due to the fact that Diglyme is classified H360 strict risk reduction measures have to be applied which means that release to the environmental compartments have to be minimized. Based on these facts the simulation tests according 309 is not warranted.
