Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Two guideline-conform ready biodegradability studies were being conducted. The valid Manometric Respirometry test according to OECD TG 301-F shows that the substance is readily biodegradable fulfilling the 10-day window. In a second study according to EU-Method C.4-E biodegradation above 60% was observed, but the 10-day window was failed. Since there is a positive result in one valid study, allyl hexanoate can be considered as readily biodegradable and is expected to undergo rapid biodegradation and to be non-persistent in the aquatic environment.
