EC number: 203-911-3
CAS number: 111-82-0
Readily biodegradable: 78% in 28 days (OECD 301C, Modified MITI Test)
One study evaluating the biodegradation potential of methyl
laurate (CAS No. 111-82-0) is available (Japanese Ministry of Economy,
Trade and Industry, 1995). In this GLP-study, conducted according to
OECD 301C, a mixture of sewage, soil and natural water was used as
inoculum and O2consumption monitored as indicator of
biodegradation. After 28 days of incubation, the test substance reached
78% biodegradation. Since the 10-day window concept does not apply to
the MITI method, methyl laurate can be considered readily biodegradable
according to OECD criteria.
