The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

1,2 -Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C6 -10 -alkylester was studied in a biodegradation study according to OECD 301B.

After 29 d 87 % was biodegraded. The 10 -day window is reached because during 10 d > 60 % was biodegraded. Therefore 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C6-10-alkyl esters is regarded as readily biodegradable.

Several studies with structurally related materials (e.g. linear C8-C10 and linear C11 phthalate) supported the result.
