Readily biodegradable, exhibiting 88% BOD in a 20-day closed bottle test equivalent to OECD 301D.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

This study included testing of biodegradability in the APHA closed-bottle BOD test, which is essentially equivalent to the current OECD 301D test. The materials, methods, and results are fully documented in the referenced report; and are sufficient for a fully valid study.
