Acute toxicity tests with catechol on fish
and invertebrates resulted in L/EC50 values ranging from 1 to 10 mg/L.
However, the results of ready biodegradation studies show that catechol
is readily biodegradable. Furthermore, this substance presents a low
potential for bioaccumulation considering the partition coefficients
reported in the litterature. As a consequence, catechol is not
classified regarding its environmental impacts, neither under the
criteria of Directive 67/548/EEC, nor under those of Regulation (EC)
