EC number: 212-855-9
CAS number: 873-94-9
As the biodegradation in OECD 301D did not reach 60% of the ThOD within a 10-d window the test substance is classified as not readily biodegradable. Nevertheless, significant biodegradation (59 % of the ThOD) was observed within 28 days.
Ready biodegradability of 3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanone
was determined in OECD 301D (Closed Bottle Test) at an initial
concentration of 2 mg/L. As inoculum freshly collected sewage from a
predominately domestic sewage treatment plant (adaption not specified)
was used. The O2consumption was followed for biodegradation
estimation over a time period of 28 days at a mean temperature of 20.44
°C. Benzoic acid, sodium salt, was used as reference substance.
The test substance 3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanone
showed 59 % degradation within 28 days. The activity of the inoculum was
confirmed by 94 % degradation of the reference substance within 28 days.
As the biodegradation did not reach
60% of the theoretical oxygen demand (ThOD) within a 10-d window the
test substance is classified as not readily biodegradable. Nevertheless,
significant biodegradation was observed.
A second test was conducted according
to OECD 302B (Inherent biodegradability: Zahn-Wellens/EMPA Test). This
study is not regarded in the assessment of 3,3,5-trimethylcyclohexanone
biodegradability because the high degree of elimination in the abiotic
control indicates that elimination is dominated by physico-chemical
processes. Thus DOC analysis and consequently the test system is
unsuitable for this substance.
