Description of key information

The structural analog vinyl neodecanoate was evaluated for biodegradability by O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 301 B "Ready Biodegradability: Modified Sturm Test (CO2 evolution)", O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 301 D "Ready Biodegradability: Closed Bottle Test" and O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline 302 C "Inherent Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test (II)".  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The level of biodegradation observed for vinyl neodecanoate in "Ready" biodegradation studies was 14 - 17% after 28 days of contact. In the inherent biodegradation study the level of biodegradation was 3 - 5% after 28 days of contact. Therefor, it is unlikely that vinyl neononanoate will be biodegradable under the same experimental conditions.
