Additional information

3,5,5-trimethylhexyl 3,5,5-trimethylhexanoate (CAS 59219-71-5) is determined to be readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria based on read across to branched-nonyl 3,5,5 trimethylhexanoate (EC 701-133-3). The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments as well, and therefore in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, column 2, 9.2.1.2. - 9.2.1.4., further simulation tests for water and sediment or soil biodegradation are not necessary.
