EC number: 227-231-1
CAS number: 5726-19-2
Test item 2 -methylcyclohexyl acetate was readily biodegradable under
BOD (28 days): 99% degradation
Test material analysis by GC (28 days): 100% degradation.
A readily biodegradation test was performed on 2 -methylcyclohexyl
acetate by MITI according to OECD Guideline 301 C. 30 mg/L of activated
sludge were exposed to 100 mg/L test item for 4 weeks. The
biodegradation obtained by indirect analysis was 99% (basis for effect:
BOD), and by direct analysis 100% (basis for effect: GC) and therefore,
2 -methylcyclohexyl acetate was determined to be readily biodegradable.
According to the current guidelines, the NOEC for microorganism toxicity
was determined to be 100 mg/L since the compound degrades well in the
ready biodegradability study.
Key study: Test method OECD 301C. No data on GLP. The NOEC (28 days) for
2-methylcyclohexyl acetate was determined to be 100 mg/L (basis for
Key study: The NOEC (28 days) for 2 -methylcyclohexyl acetate was
determined to be 100 mg/L since the compound degrades well (99%
biodegradation by BOD analysis, 100% biodegradation by GC analysis) in a
ready biodegradability test according to OECD 301 C.
