Additional information

2-ethylhexyl cyanoacetate (CAS 13361-34-7) is readily biodegradable based on a ready biodegradability test according to OECD 301B using non-adapted activated sludge from a wwtp treating predominantly domestic sewage. The degradation was 70-80% after 28 d as determined by CO2 evolution and (BASF AG, 1997; report no. 96/0366/22/1). The 10-d window was kept
