Description of key information

The test substance Reaction product of adipic acid and sebacic acid and isotridecan-1-ol was demonstrated to be readily biodegradable in an OECD 301B-test. This result is supported by tests of analogues and components. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

In OECD 301B-tests reaction product of adipic acid and sebacic acid and isotridecan-1 -ol and the diisotridecyl adipate were readily biodegradable. In EPISuite-calculations it was also found that the components/isomers of these substances, including the diisotridecyl sebacate, are readily biodegradable. Addionally the read-across substances Diisotridecyl dodecanedioate and bis (2-ethylhexyl) adipate were in OECD-tests readily biodegradable. Therefore it is likely that the reaction product of adipic acid and sebacic acid and isotridecan-1 -ol including the components are readily biodegradable and not persistent.
