Additional information

One biodegradation study was available for cyclopentane and this showed the substance to be not readily biodegradable. The study (ExxonMobil Chemical-177194A 2004) is a GLP-compliant, OECD 301F guideline test which showed that cyclopentane was found to undergo 0% biodegradation in water after 28. The test fulfilled the validity criteria and was considered reliable without restriction and suitable as a study for this endpoint.
