Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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: 64 - 79% OECD 301B (CO2 evolution) in 28 days.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The test substance is found to be readily biodegradable based on available data. The key study was selected on the basis of higher biodegradation rate for the test substance. In other supporting study, a ready biodegradation value of 53 - 54% (OECD 301D) was obtained for the test substance. The rate of degradation is consistent with results obtained for linear alcohols of short chain length.

In some cases the CAS and chemical identity stated refer to SDA nomenclature for this substance. in REACH substance identification it is necessary to be more specific as to the chain lengths present. Full details may be found in the CSR.
