Description of key information

The test substance, 2,3-epoxypropyl o-tolyl ether was evaluated for ready biodegradability in two independent O.E.C.D. test guideline 301B studies.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The test substance had a maximum biodegradation of 17% after 28 days of activated sludge contact. Therefore, the test substance is not readily biodegradable under the conditions of the studies.
