Description of key information

Additional information

Study reports conducted according to standardized OECD test guidelines are not available. However, there is sufficient information from non-standard testing methods to demonstrate that Normal-Heptane exhibits ready extents and rates of biodegradation (Haines and Alexander 1974, Solano-Serena et al. 1999, Garnier et al. 2000). Consequently, no further testing on biodegradation in water and sediment as well as on biodegradation in soil is required.
