Readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

2 -ethylhexyl acetate is classified as readily biodegradable. In a CO2-Evolution test according to OECD guideline 301B the biodegradation of 2 -ethylhexyl acetae was investigated [BASF AG, 2003]. After 28 days 70 % degradation of 2 -ethylhexyl acetate was determined.
