Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

no biodegradation was observed in a closed bottle test following OECD 301D and a non-guideline inherent biodegradation test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

ready biodegration

Because of the volatility of the test item, ready biodegradation was determined in a closed bottle test following OECD 301D. No biodegradation of 2 -Norbornene at a concentration of 1.86 mg/l could be observed even after 28d, a 10 -day window could not be detected. The test met all validity criteria. (Muckle, 2010)

inherent biodegradation

In a laboratory scale model of a sewage treatment plant, Norbornene was fed to adapted microorganisms originally stemming from a domestic sewage treatment plant. After adaptation, increasing amounts of Norborene up to 40 ml/l were fed within a 21d period. Under test conditions no sign of biodegradation could be observed. (VEB Leuna, 1979)
