Biodegradability of succinic anhydride was evaluated using the
hydrolysis product succinic acid. Succinic acid and consequently
succinic anhydride were found to be readily biodegradable using the OECD
301E test guideline.
In accordance with REACH Annex VIII column 2, a hydrolysis study does
not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable.
However, two sources report a half life of approximately 5 minutes for
Due to the low logKOW of succinic anhydride (2.44), the substance is
expected to have a low potential for bioaccumulation and soil adsorption
and testing of these properties is not indicated according to REACH
Annex IX column 2.
