Description of key information

METHYL CEDRYL KETONE undergoes 36 % biodegradation after 28 days in the test conditions. Biodegradation starts after a rather long lag phase of 8 to 14 days (even longer in presence of aniline).
Thus, METHYL CEDRYL KETONE should be regarded as not readily biodegradable according to this test.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
