Description of key information

Half life period of 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-on in water was estimated to be 38 days  indicating that 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-on is readily biodegradable in water since the half life is less than the threshold of 40 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable
