Additional information

In a prolongated OECD 301 B study, the test item Alcohols C 6 - C24 and C 6 - C24 unsat. Distn. Residues was found to be not readily biodegradable 50 % at day 28, however with 60 % mineralization at day 61 the results of the enhanced (prolonged) test are regarded as evidence of inherent biodegradability. Therefore, the substance is not persistance.
