Description of key information

Based on the results of several aerobic biodegradation studies, Alcohols, C9-C11, branched is readily biodegradable in the aqueous environment (71% in 28 days).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Alcohols, C9-11 -branched biodegraded to a high extent, 71%, in a standard test of ready biodegradability, and is readily biodegradable. Biotic degradation is expected to significantly contribute to the loss of this substance from the environment.
