Description of key information

The MITI study  (1993) is selected as key study. Although GLP were not mentioned, this study was performed according to OECD 301C test guideline and was generated by the Japanese Competent Authorities. The vanillin biodegradation rate reached 97% (relative to biochemical oxygen demand) after 14 days.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Other studies were selected as supporting studies: NIVA study confirms the ready biodegradation potential of vanillin. Martinez (1993), Healy (1979) and RP (1987) demonstrated the potential of Vanillin for biodegradation in various conditions (anaerobic, effluents. . .).
