Additional information

A study using a standardized OECD 301F ready test guideline is available (Shell 1997). Results from this manometric respirometry test procedure demonstrated 98% biodegradation of the test substance, hydrocarbons, C6-C7, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <5% n-hexane, after 28 days. The test substance is thus considered readily biodegradable. Therefore no further testing is conducted on biodegradation in water and sediment as well as on biodegradation in soil.
