Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Readily biodegradable: 83% in 28 days (OECD 301F, Manometric Respirometry Test)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study evaluating the potential for ready biodegradability of Glycerides, C8-21 and C8-21-unsaturated, mono- and di-, acetates (CAS No. 97593-30-1) is available (Weyers, 2007). This test was conducted according to OECD Guideline 301F (Manometric Respirometry Test), under GLP conditions. Domestic activated sludge was used as inoculum, being exposed to the test substance for 28 days at 22 ± 1°C. After 28 days, the test substance reached 83% biodegradation and therefore, it can be considered readily biodegradable.
