Description of key information

Based upon a calculated log Koc adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex VIII, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for adsorption (e.g. the substance has a low octanol water partition coefficient), or the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. The substance has a log Kow < 3 and is considered to be readily biodegradable. Testing is therefore not required. In addition The Koc of 2 -methylbutan-1 -ol is 5.57 (log Koc = 0.75) as calculated using SRC PCKOCWIN v2.00, [BASF SE 2010]. Based upon a calculated log Koc adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected.
