Description of key information

According to EPI (Estimation Programs Interface) Suite by means of BIOWIN Linear and Nonlinear method it is indicated that tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is a readily biodegradable substance and degrades fast. Also it was estimated that the half of tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is 900 hous (37.5 days) which is less than the EPI criteria for persistence (les than 60 days). Therefore it can be estimated that tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is not persistent in water medium.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable
