Description of key information

Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate was read across to vinyl neodecanoate due to structural similarity. Vinyl Neodecanoate was tested for biodegradation potential by three O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline protocols: O.E.C.D. No. 301B, Modified Strum, 301D,   Closed Bottle and 302C Inherent Biodegradation: Modified MITI Test (II).  The test substance was not biodegradable under any of the test conditions.      

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate was read across to vinyl neodecanoate due to structural similarity. With O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline no. 301D Closed Bottle, 14 - 17% of Vinyl Neodecanoate was biodegraded within 28 days. Biodegradation of the test substance was 3 - 5% after 28 days under O.E.C.D. Testing Guideline no. 302C Inherent Biodegradation: Modified MITI Test (II) conditions. The O.E.C.D. 301B Modified Strum study conditions were not considered to be valid for the volatile Vinyl Neodecanoate.
