Description of key information

Readily biodegradable: 92% in 28 d (ISO method); 77.9% (CO2) in 28 days (OECD 301B; not GLP) (read across from a structural analogue: Octan-1-ol).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The most recent standard reliable study available contains significant and useful results but was not conducted to GLP. This study gave results of 77.97% (CO2) in 28 days (OECD 301B) (readily biodegradable).

Due to the lack of GLP, another reliable standard study (P&G 1996), which also found the substance to be readily biodegradable, is the Key study.
