Description of key information

Readily biodegradable: 79 % (O2 consumption) after 28 d (OECD 301F) 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study on the ready biodegradability of Glycerides, tall-oil mono-, di-, and tri- (CAS 97722-02-6) is available. The test was conducted according to OECD Guideline 301F, under GLP conditions (Richterich, 1996). Activated sludge was exposed to the test substance for 28 days. The biodegradation rate was determined by measuring the O2 consumption of the inoculum. After 28 days, a biodegradation rate of 79 % was reached. Based on the results Glycerides, tall-oil mono-, di-, and tri- (CAS 97722-02-6) is considered as readily biodegradable.
