Description of key information

In a study according to OECD 301F, the substance attained a maximum mean level of biodegradation (based on the BOD:COD ratio) of 72% over a 28 day period and the results showed good replication. As the substance is UVCB, according to OECD and ECHA guidance documents, the 10-day window can be waived. Therefore, as > 60% biodegradation was achieved within 28 days The substance is readily biodegradable.

No hydrolysis study is considered necessary as the substance is readily biodegradable.

The logKoc of a representative component of the substance (C16 acetate) as calculated with a QSAR is 2.5.
