Description of key information

The calculations by EPI Suite show, that quinic acid is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

at the temperature of:
25 °C
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The given biodegradability is calculated from BIOWIN v4.10 using the models BioWin3 and BioWin5. From the combined results it can be concluded, that the quinic acid is readily biodegradable. Nevertheless, the EPA recommends that EPI Suite is a screening-level tool and should not be used if acceptable measured values are available. However, empirical studies have not been done, so that we have to consider, that the substance is readily biodegradable.
