Description of key information

None of the publications dealing with the degradation of vanillin in soil have been selected as key study. However, they can be used in a weight of evidence approach to report that vanillin can be degraded in different soils, in different conditions of temperature (13 and 20°C) and that vanillic acid, which is itself degraded in soil, is one of the degradation product.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

It is to be noted that since vanillin is readily biodegradable, further degradation in soil would not be necessary to investigate.
