hydrolysis
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not expected. The substances are obtained by a steam distillation process. These conditions - heating in the presence of water- are also applied in a Hydrolysis test. The molecular structures of the known constituents in these UVCBs do therefore contain non-hydrolysable structures.

In addition, for both distilled fractions Terpenes 1 and 2 readily biodegradability was concluded.

Hydrolysis was therefore not further assessed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
