Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable but failing 10-day window

Additional information

The degree of biodegradation for 1,8 -Naphthalenediol, 1,8 -dibenzoate was 60 -70% CO2/ThCO2 in the test on ready biodegradability conducted according OECD Guideline 301 B (BASF SE, 2015). The required pass level for ready biodegradability within a 10 -d window was not reached..

1,8 -Naphthalenediol, 1,8 -dibenzoate is therefore evaluated as biodegradable, but not readily biodegradable in this test.
