Description of key information

Toxicity to aquatic microorganisms is not expected due to the ready biodegradability and the expected rapid metabolism of this substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No studies for Bis(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethyl) adipate (CAS 141-17-3) on the aquatic toxicity to microorganisms are available. However, in the ready biodegradation study according to OECD Guideline 301 B, 82% biodegradation was observed at a test item concentration of 20 mg/L after 28 days. The ready biodegradability of the substance indicates that the substance does not inhibit the activity of activated sludge microorganisms. Hence, based on the available information, toxicity to aquatic microorganisms by Bis(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethyl) adipateis not expected to be of concern.
