Description of key information

The ready biodegradability of dihydromyrcenol was determined in an OECD 301B guideline test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

In a OECD 301B guideline study with non-adapted activated sludge, 72% biodegradation was achieved after 28 days based on carbon dioxide production (60% being surpassed within 10 days after reaching 10%).

Dihydromyrcenol can therefore be considered readily biodegradable.
