Information is available for the ready biodegradability, inherent
biodegradability and adsorption coefficient of hexyl acetate. A QSAR was
also conducted to estimate the bioconcentration factor (BCF).
In an OECD 301D test hexyl acetate was found to be 66% degraded within
28 days, and as such the substance is considered readily biodegradable.
A further study on inherent biodegradability is available, conducted to
OECD 302C. As the substance was 85% degraded within the 28 days, it is
also considered to be inherently biodegradable.
The adsorption coefficient of hexyl acetate was determined in an OECD
121 HPLC test. The log Koc was determined to be 2.47 (Koc= 293).
A QSAR for bioconcentration carried out using the experimental log Kow
estimated a log BCF of 1.844 (BCF=69.88 L/kg wet-wt) indicating a low
potential for bioaccumulation.
