Description of key information

Isobutyl-(R)-lactate is predicted to be readily biodegradable by the (Q)SAR model BIOWIN v4.10.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The biodegradability of isobutyl-(R)-lactate was calculated by QSAR estimation using EpiSuite 4.1/BIOWIN, Biowin 1–7. All sub-model results unequivocally predict that isobutyl-(R)-lactate is readily biodegradable (including anaerobic degradation); the predicted time frame for ultimate degradation is days to weeks.
