3-hydroxy-1,1-dimethylbutyl 2-ethyl-2-methylheptaneperoxoate was observed to be not readily biodegradable according to OECD 301B.
The ready biodegradability of 3-hydroxy-1,1-dimethylbutyl
2-ethyl-2-methylheptaneperoxoate was evaluated in a study
performed in accordance with OECD testing guideline 301 B and GLP
requirements. The substance was tested for its ready biodegradability in
the modified Sturm test at nominal concentrations of 10 and 20 mg/L.
The relative degradation values calculated from the measurements
performed during the test period showed a slight degradation at 10 mg/L
(16%) but no significant biodegradation at 20 mg/L (4.4%). However,
since the substance is hardly soluble in water, the lack of microbial
degradation could be a consequence of the limited availability for
micro-organisms. Thus under the conditions of this test, 3-hydroxy-1,1-dimethylbutyl
2-ethyl-2-methylheptaneperoxoate was not readily
Under the same conditions sodium acetate was degraded by 75.1%.
