Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The study was conducted according to a standard guideline (OECD 301F) and was conducted with minor deviations, but was not conducted under a GLP guideline.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Hydrocarbons, C12-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, alkenes biodegraded to an extent of 76.3% after 28 days. The data support characterizing the test substance as rapidly biodegradable, readily biodegradable, not expected to persist in the environment under aerobic conditions. Although it did not meet the 10 -day window requirement, it is characterized as readily biodegradable because the criterion is not applied to multi-component substances when assessing their ready biodegradability.
