Description of key information

The hydrolysis product of the rapidly hydrolysing test substance is readily biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. 2-Ethylhexanoyl chloride rapidly hydrolyses to 2-ethylhexanoic acid and HCl. 2-Ethylhexanoic acid is readily biodegradable (EKO LAB, 1998).
