Additional information

Reaction mass of bis(2-propylheptyl) hexanedioate and O6-[2,2-bis[[6-oxo-6-(2-propylheptoxy)hexanoyl]oxymethyl]butyl] O1-(2-propylheptyl) hexanedioateis readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. The substances is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments. Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, 9.2.1.2 – 9.2.1.4, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation tests are not necessary:
