Results of the OECD 301C MITI ready biodegradation test indicates that allyl alcohol is readily biodegradable with 86% degradation after 14 days. According to the REACH regulation, it was not necessary to conduct the following tests as allyl alcohol was determined to be readily biodegradable:

- Hydrolysis test

- Biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation test

- Biodegradation in soil

Allyl alcohol is expected to have low potential for bioaccumulation due to low water-octanol partition coefficient (Log Kow = 0.17, Log Koc = 0.6). Based on the physicochemical properties, it is also expected that allyl alcohol will have low potential for adsorption and so an adsorption/desorption screening test was not considered to be necessary.
