Description of key information

3 -oxoglutaric acid is 50% biodegradable in soil in 17 days (half-life). This value indicates that 3 -oxoglutaric acid is readily biodegradable in soil since the half life is more than the EPA criteria of >= 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
17 d

Additional information

3 -oxoglutaric acid is 50% biodegradable in soil in 17 days (half-life). This value indicates that 3 -oxoglutaric acid is readily biodegradable in soil since the half life is more than the EPA criteria of >= 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).

Hence, it can be concluded that the substance 3 -oxoglutaric acid is not persistent in soil.
