C14-C20 Aliphatics (2-30% Aromatics), multi-component substances, biodegraded to an extent of 61% after 28 days in an OECD 301F study. The data support characterizing the test substance (Hydrocarbons, C14-C18, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, aromatics (2-30%)) as rapidly biodegradable, readily biodegradable, not expected to persist in the environment under aerobic conditions. Although it did not meet the 10 -day window requirement, it is characterized as readily biodegradable because the criteria is not applied to multi-component substances when assessing their ready biodegradability.
