Description of key information

A test according to the EU Method C.4-E (Determination of the "Ready" Biodegradability - Closed Bottle Test) was conducted to investigate the ready biodegradability of cyclohexylamine. Within 20 d, 92 % of the test item were degraded (Bayer AG, 1976). Therefore, the substance can be scored as readily biodegradable. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
