Description of key information

Not readily biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Data was not available for 3a,4,5,6,7,7a-hexahydro-4,7 -methano-1H-indene, therefore available data has been read across from a study for CAS Number 68478 -10 -4 (Exxon Mobil 2004). The test substance within this report contained DCPD and was found not to be readily biodegradable.

A MITI (1998) study for DCPD which was unavailable for review also indicated that the test substance was not readily biodegradable.
