Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The ready biodegradability of Propanediol Dicaprylate was investigated in a manometric respirometry test over a period of 28 days, according to OECD guideline no. 301F.

The biodegradation was followed by the oxygen uptake of the micro-organisms during exposure.

The mean biodegradation after 28 days of Propanediol Dicaprylate was 75% (ThODNH4).
