Readily biodegradation:

After 14 d, 0 % of 4 -chlorotoluene were degraded preforming a ready biodegradabiltiy test corresponding to OECD 301C (MITI, 1992).

Inherently biodegradation:

4 -Chlorotoluene was degraded about 86 % after 28 d testing the inherent biodegradability of the test substance. Due to the significant elimination (68 %) within 3 h there is evidence that the disappearance of p-chlorotoluene is caused by physico-chemical effects rather than biodegradation processes.
