Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

Description of key information

ready biodegradability (OECD 301F): 82.25% degradation after 28 days

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

One guideline study investigating the biodegradation in water of D-Glucopyranose, oligomeric, heptyl glycoside is available. The potential for ready biodegradability of the substance was investigated in a test according to the OECD guideline 301F ("Ready Biodegradability: Manometric Respirometry Test") (Institut Technologique FCBA, 2011). Domestic activated sludge was used as inoculum. The test resulted in 82.25% biodegradation after 28 days based on O2-consumption, also fulfilling the 10-day criterion. Thus, the test item is considered as readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
