Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

One study, investigating the ready biodegradability of Fatty acids, C5-10 (linear and branched), mixed esters with pentaerythritol according to OECD 301F (Manometric Respirometry Test), is available. In the GLP-study (Serben, 2007) domestic activated sludge was used as inoculum. At test termination after 28 days the substance was degraded to 89% and the 10-day-window was reached. Therefore, the test substance can be classified as readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
