Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable but failing 10-day window

Additional information

Ready biodegradability of 1-Decanamine, N-decyl, N-methyl has been investigated through OECD Guideline 301 B referenced as EU Method C.4 -C and EPA OPPTS 835.3110.

The test material attained 74% degradation after 28d. Under the strict terms and conditions of OECD Guideline 301 B, the test materail cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable as the test material failed to satisfy the 10 -day window validation criterion, so it is consider as not rapidly degradable.
