Description of key information

3-diethylaminophenol was estimated to be 50% biodegradable in water in 38 days (half-life) indicating that 3-diethylaminophenol is readily biodegradable in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Based on level III fugacity model the half life period of 3-diethylaminophenol was estimated 3-diethylaminophenol was estimated to be 50% biodegradable in water in 38 days (half-life) indicating that 3-diethylaminophenol is readily biodegradable in water since the half life is less than the threshold of 40 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).
