Additional information

For bis(2ethylhexyl)maleinate, no data are available about the biodegradability in soil or water simulation tests. Only data from biodegradation screening tests are available. In three studies on ready biodegradability it could be shown that bis(2ethylhexyl)maleinate is readily biodegradable, however, the ten-day window criterion was not met in any of the tests. The potential biodegradability of bis(2ethylhexyl)maleinate could be shown in a test on inherent biodegradability.
