Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Justification for Read Across

Attached at section 13 is a category justification that explains the rationale for using data on a mixture of Dimethyl Esters (DBE), and Dimethyl Glutarate, to supplement the available data on Dimethyl Adipate.

Dibasic esters (DBE) were determined to be readily biodegradable in an AFNOR T90-312 or ISO 7827 test under GLP conditions.

The biodegradability of dibasic esters (DBE) in seawater was assessed in a method that followed procedures described in the OECD TDG 306, (1992) "Biodegradability in Sea Water; Closed Bottle Test" and US EPA Fate, Transport, and Transformation Test Guidelines OPPTS 835.3160.

The test material attained 87% degradation after 28 days and, therefore, can be considered to have the potential for biodegradation in the marine environment under the terms and conditions of OECD Guideline No 306.
