Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

There is no study on biodegradation available for the reaction mass of citronellyl acetate and neryl acetate and geranyl acetate. However, there are studies available for both main components of the reaction mass, geranyl acetate (59.9 %) and neryl acetate (36 %), respectively. Based on a study according to EEC Directive 79-831, Annex V, Part C, 5.2 for geranyl acetate and one OECD 301F study for neryl acetate, which are the two components, the reaction mass can be classified as been readily biodegradable.
