Description of key information

In a study investigating the aerobic biodegradation of several sesquiterpenes (Jenner K.J., Kreutzer G. and Racine P., Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, Vol. 30, No. 5, pp, 2011), an OECD test guidance 301F Manometric Respiratory was conducted on several chemical structures, including Caryophyllene. After 28 days, the biodegradation of this substance was found to be 70%. Substance is therefore concluded as readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable
Type of water:
freshwater
